This film is composed of three sections created to accompany a piece of music (by Barbara Feldman) on a Homeric poem:
1) «Diana holds back the night ...» is represented by dark shapes suppressing (almost angularly interfering with) orange-golden effusions of paint and the reflective paint-shapes of early morning greens (as if silhouettes or arm and bodily profile were shading the light)
2) «Homer's "... rolling sea ...» represented by hand-painted step-printed dissolves of blues in wave shapes, bubbles, and the soft browns and tender greens of seaweed, flotsam-jetsam
3) «Ah, love again, the light» represented by painted explosions of multiple hues and lines recurrently interrupted by the "blush" of soft suffusing reds.
