Une âme séparée de son corps, condamnée à errer dans les abimes d’une société du passé. Les images chaudes, animées par un feu de camp donnent la parole à un discours glacial. Impossible cependant que l’esthétique surpasse l’amertume que provoque le Ritual. Translation (approximate, I hope) :

A soul separated from its body, condemned to wander in the abyss of a society of the past. The warm images, animated by a campfire, give voice to an icy speech. However, the aesthetics cannot overcome the bitterness caused by the Ritual.
