Inspired by Homer’s Odyssey, the film creates a queer reinterpretation of the nymph Calypso who traps Odysseus on her island. This intimate and sensuous rendition unveils the characters’ emotional states through subtle gestures and contemplative portraits, delving into feelings of love, longing and abandonment.
