The ritual at the center of the work is framed by two scenes, each with its 
own distinct cinematic language. First, a preceding interview with the two participants seems at the beginning to be a straightforward documentary about their own experiences within the Israeli BDSM scene, but soon transforms into an exposition of the narrative premise by which one is possessed, the other an exorcist. The ritual scene itself is dense with sound and images. The final musical scene is a song set to the words of the Russian poet Esenin’s Letter to Mother. Executed as a one-shot, the song not only elevates and complicates the emotional resonance of what preceded it, but is also a direct, if twisted, hommage to the final scene of another film that deals with hybridity, radical sexuality and politics: Dusan Makavejev’s WR, The Mystery of the Organism.
