Before I break down what is happening in this story completely, let’s just walk through the entire animation step by step first. The first shot fading out from white, shows a rainy landscape at sunset with the silhouette of a single figure (Pod) standing roughly in the middle of the shot. He’s standing on a field, there’s a tree to the left of the shot and two hills in the background, one on each side of the shot, Pod seems to be just watching the sun setting. After a brief closer look at Pod the camera pulls back to the original shot as a woman with an umbrella walks onto the scene, heading directly towards Pod, stopping just a few feet short of him.
Pod instantly pulls a gun out, pointing it directly at the woman’s face. Pod looks down, points the gun towards his head and then looks directly back at the woman. The woman’s posture remains unaffected and strong, as she says “Fall for me”. At that moment Pod pulls the trigger. You can see the flash of the gun and the blood spray from his head.
This is instantly followed by a segment where there are many silhouettes of Pod and the woman in a line, and blood from Pods head starts to fill the screen, at one point seemingly taking on the shape of a bird or dragon for a second, before completely consuming the screen with blood. There are then two images that flash on the screen, the first is a queue of Pods confronting his own dead body in the darkness. The second is Pod from many angles placed on top of each other, the sunlight is so bright it almost visually consumes parts of him. The screen then goes red again and then fades to a similar scene, but now with a darker sky and Pod now in full color, being the focal point of this shot. He turns around and steps forwards.
The view then changes to more of a top down view, you can see Pod laying on the ground with blood visible on the floor around his head. Another Pod walks on to the screen straight towards the dead Pod on the ground. Once he reaches the dead Pod he stands there for a second before dropping to his knees, looking at the dead body. As the camera angle changes to a more level view, Pod is knelt next to the body which then begins to fade away. The camera then changes to a close up on Pod as he looks forwards followed by the camera panning around to the back of him revealing the bright setting sun once again. The screen then fades to white setting up the animation to loop, bringing it full circle.
