Director Björn Rühmann (formerly of directing team The Vikings), co-creator Kerstin Rühmann and songwriter/composer Anthony Frattolillo have created a trilogy of powerful short films that act as individual music videos for songs by American folk outfit the Herbert Bail Orchestra. And within each video, a series of broken characters face the drama of alienation and existential despair over the course of a single day.

In the first part of the trilogy, The Nature of Things, the scene is set for the harrowing journey of a man (played by English actor Richie Coster) through the barren American desert, trying to save his only companion, his dog. His spirit and perseverance, beyond all hope, is the reason to keep watching this viscerally punishing film - and then be hooked by an ending that will make you want to watch the next one...
