After James, a blind man, inexplicably regains his vision, he becomes possessed by a drive to make a better life for himself. However, his new improvements -- a nicer home, a higher paying job, tailored suits, luxury car -- leave little room for the people who were part of his old, simpler life: his plain wife and close friend Bob.
As his relationships buckle under the strain of his snowballing ambition, it becomes uncertain if James can ever return from darkness. Fluk paints a visual world that reflects the mesmerizing effect that newfound sight has on James; the vibrant backgrounds and the sun-drenched rooms are captivating in their beauty.
His dreamy and subjective style combines with an astute sense of character to craft a tale of desire, perception, and what it really means to be blind.
