Inspired by the paintings of Pieter Bruegel and August Strindberg’s A Dream Play, ELIJAH GREEN follows a divine spirit as it wanders through contemporary life. Despite unremarkable existences, the stories of the characters layer into a portrait of the interconnectivity of all
humans, with each individual both the center of the world and part of something they cannot comprehend.
