WORMHOLE

A psychological voyage into the mind of Jim, a young, confidence lacking student arriving at university to pursue his passion – to study behavioral ecology - the evolutionary basis for animal behavior through ecological changes.

Jim is an individual who, despite his desire to “belong” and “to be accepted” by others, instinctively withdraws himself from any form of social life and is afraid to reach out to others. He feels secure in his loneliness, surrounded by his mute "friends": his various insect specimens and books.

The story starts as Jim meets his new flatmate, Matt, who just happens to be his polar opposite – a charming, talkative and seemingly easy going guy. Matt is a person Jim has always wanted to be but for whom he also harbors disdain, perceiving him as superficial, obnoxious and forceful. Despite Matt's perfect exterior, he soon becomes a symbol of the absolute imperfection in Jim's eyes.

Being aware of his own oddity, is what gnaws at Jim's consciousness. He hides behind a facade of what he believes to be “normality”, and as a result gets more engaged in the vivid life of his would-be idol flatmate, maybe a touch too much.

Lost in this strange world, Jim is gradually unable to distinguish between reality and fantasies; dreams and nightmares...
