A slow-eyed vamp steps into view to serenade a seemingly empty field. In his croon, the aging spirit appears to catch the attention of a meandering young man. Finished his reviling song, we follow the spirit into the cover of the woods. Like a dog he seeks out a quiet space to die, choosing to rest in the still of a bog.
