"The 12-minute video features a pony being walked around in a circle inside a paddock The grainy images and the dark sounds render the atmosphere rather intimidating. The pony's movement seems painful. It is closed in, a prisoner. Towards the end of the video the pony becomes freer; first it fades out of the frame, and then returns in a happier mood. Depending on your interpretation, it either dies, or becomes enlightened - the pony is past caring." (from the director's synopsis)
