In the film, a man, portrayed by James Devereaux, finds himself seated on a park bench, engaging in a direct dialogue with the camera. He grapples with articulating a thought that resists cohesion, all the while providing commentary on the various passers-by, his so-called 'guests'. However, the tranquillity of his park bench monologue is disrupted by the intrusion of enigmatic images. "Closure of Catharsis" serves as an elusive and profoundly evasive response to the Remodernist Film Manifesto.
