Film observations[]

Workers in all white concentrate on their tasks.

The film opens as persons clad in all white mechanically rise to the sound of marching beats. We see them working in silence, intent on their garments, wigs, and sculpture.

One of the workers soon walks out to relieve himself - his urine creeping onto the basement where we see Lee seemingly in a rough state of condition - a flood of memories come pouring in. She brings herself to a stand and makes her way out from the dark room, carrying her mangled body towards shelter.

There she meets another person in white, who warns her not to wander outside and offers her a white liquid to drink, claiming it is from 'the UNENDING PARTY'. She slowly goes to slumber. She looks up and we see another version of Lee who later on devolves into a suspended state of animation - a time bubble in repetition. Lee, no longer weak, steps out.

Lee meets a man from the 'outside' and develops a connection.

Days come after and we see Lee staring outside a window, looking through the snow covered landscape. She is in deep thought thinking if she will be in the place forever but is ever curious of what lies beyond the confines of her shelter. The television plays loudly and catches Lee's attention. She emulates what she is seeing and was finally convinced to step out into the 'outside.'

Seasons changed and someone else arrived. She meets a man from the 'outside' and develops a deeper connection. However, it fades.


They decide to go to the UNENDING PARTY. She sees a cohort of people in all white once again holding glasses of white liquid with a singer seen at the center of it all. Lee grows curious but is ultimately unfazed. 'LEAVE!' one says and she was forced to walk out from the group; the man she met no longer with her.

She traverses out into the road and exclaims she was alone again. However, a vehicle soon passes by and invites her in. They all came from the 'outside.' She recollects what had happened to her as they listen with much attention. With her new band of warriors along her side, she ventures forth. They have things to achieve.

Lee's group in black emerges from the fires victorious.

The two opposing forces - Lee, leading the group in black - clash in an open battlefield. Lee emerges victorious and makes her way towards the UNENDING PARTY. There she confidently takes center stage. With a match in hand, she burns the place and leaves with her group.

It did not last long and betrayal found its way in. Lee is once again transported back to the beginning.
