Speaking about the short film, GAIKA says: “The film is about a few interlocking things. It's human emotion existing within reality. I think a lot of the time in music or art, we live in a fantasy world, and living in that fantasy world and being completely separated from reality, becomes normal, but it’s weird to me. I wanted to try and make something that really shows how I feel, that those things aren’t separate, feelings aren’t abstract from forces. If you take an idea, abstract it, reality can and will still show through. There’s that, and then it’s also about my parents and experiences that they witnessed, in some regard, as truth be told, you can't separate the spaghetti from the sauce. On some level it’s about the world that we live in at the moment too as much as it about people in a [London area] Knightsbridge basement in 1975”
