The David Wilson-directed clip sees Chris street-dancing in the middle of a lush green meadow. She ultimately makes her way to a pond, dancing and laying carefreely in the water before the video concludes.

In a statement, Letissier explained that the video is inspired by Shakespeare's Hamlet.

“For me, the whole idea of the video is to twist the terrible ending of Ophelia, as a myth, an idea," she wrote. "In Hamlet, Ophelia is, of course, the unlucky lover, the rejected one; but her madness and the suicide that ensues is also symptomatic of a whole era: the young girl, unwanted, unloved, simply cannot live. She's doomed, she disappears, she melts with nature."
