A collection of scenes/images that, ostensibly, tells the story of a search for missing images, involving an expedition to a secret world (Nomala) with a nomadic people who control images. It is less of a narrative, and more of an essay on the importance of images in our lives and the way we take them for granted. Central among the images is an animated silkworm that is tied to an ancient Chinese story of a silkworm and an empress. The image of the worm and its glowing cocoon is interspersed with scenes of the expedition to Nomala organized by a professor.
