Toogie's Trip to Bukuokuka follows a soul waiting on a lover. Reliving her memories with this significant other, she loses her way and descends into distorted dreams and fantasies where the bittersweet of pain and suffering begin to emerge. Guided by The Man in the Orange Suit, Toogie journeys across uncanny dreamscapes of her own devising. She encounters the masochistic tribesmen of the Bukuokuka Tribe and her own inner child, who aid her in revisiting her violent past. As the line between reality and fiction start to blur, Toogie both finds and loses herself in mindless violence. She becomes both the observer and the observed; her own gaze reminding us that like her, we are all voyeurs in our own perverse fantasies.
