Twenty-something Richard travels to Thailand and finds himself in possession of a strange map. Rumours state that it leads to a solitary beach paradise, a tropical bliss – excited and intrigued, he sets out to find it.
Of course you could never forget what we have done, but we adapt. We carry on. And me? I still believe in paradise. But now at least I’ll know it’s not some place you can look for because it’s not where you go, it’s how you feel for a moment in your life when you’re a part of something. And if you find that moment…it lasts forever.
“Richard’s monologue at the end of the film”
You realize that, in the eternity of space, there’s probably a planet out there, right…just like this one…where another you is photographing back down towards us. I mean, essentially, you are photographing yourself in a parallel universe. I mean there are infinite worlds out there, you know? Where anything you want to happen…does happen.
