Shot in the Borrego desert, the video highlights a conflicted character through expansive expressions of the body, limited by elements of anonymity. Using a combination of tangible materials and post-production effects, mysterious veils are placed to change the perception of the viewer as well as mirror the character's internal disconnect. "Borrego" is the Spanish word for "lamb". Historically, the animal symbolizes purity, innocence and martyrdom. Glimpses of these characteristics are complexly present, vacillating between states of acquiescence and resistance as well as vulnerability and confrontation as the dancer struggles to connect the "self" to the "sacrifice".
