Plot / Description

Lost in Motion II explores the spectrum of emotions experienced by an Artist as they bare their soul for all to see. The film showcases the Artist's state of mind by depicting her within an ominous yet atmospheric environment where she dances in solitude. Adorned in a vibrant red dress that reflects the iconic stage curtains of the theatre, she pushes herself to the limits of her seemingly solitude performance. As the film draws to a close, we see that the dancer has in fact been performing on stage the entire time, and that the visual world is a fantasy one created by her imagination. 
 
"Lost In Motion II"

Voiceover

(Lyrics) I stepped into an avalanche 
It covered up my soul 
When I am not this hunchback that you see 
I sleep beneath the golden hill 
You who wish to conquer pain 
You must learn, learn to serve me well 
You strike my side by accident 
As you go down for your gold 
The cripple here that you clothe and feed 
Is neither starved nor cold 
He does not ask for your company 
Not at the center, the center of the world 
Do not dress in those rags for me,  
I know you are not poor;  
You don't love me quite so fiercely now  
When you know that you are not sure,  
It is your turn, beloved,  
It is your flesh that I wear
