Secret Life

In Secret Life, a woman is trapped in an apartment filled with moving plants. She moves at a mechanical speed and her mind functions like a clock whose hands pin the events of her life to the tapestry of time. Her thoughts escape her and come to life, growing like the plants that inhabit the space around her: living, searching, feeling, breathing and dying.

Reynold Reynolds suggests that all living things are endowed with consciousness. Philosophically and scientifically, the concept of time has been extensively discussed and investigated, yet its real nature remains unresolved; it has proven more mysterious and profound than life itself.
