the forest within

The reclusive biology student's apartment is filled with aquariums, terrariums, and cages. His love for animals connects him with Alice, a radical environmental activist, whom he eventually falls in love with. When Jan slips into a schizophrenic crisis, a heady whirlwind of love and delusion ensues, culminating in a decision for a new life.
