A woman arrives at a port town in an unknown country at dawn. Her recounted stories begin to contradict themselves as she travels across the landscape. She is searching for something, a shape or a structure, which we are not even sure exists. Along the road she is eventually forced into initiating the process of self-reckoning. As her artifice begins to fall away she finds herself continuing her journey but now with a sense of resolution.

After gaining experience as an assistant to Milcho Manchevski on the Oscar nominated film 'Before the rain' piers went on to work with Peter Kosminsky and alongside one of the uk's leading directors, Michael Winterbot Tom.

He has also produced a selection of video installations for galleries in London and Paris. Piers is presently developing 'Thamesland', his first feature project.'
