Plot summary

Alfie is a failing actress and a junkie lost in filth. One fine afternoon, she and her new lover travel to a remote waterfall inside the woods. Tired with all the walking, she soon falls asleep by the waterfall and the dream that follows is bizarre, horrifying, where she is bound up tight in a shady dungeon and tortured mercilessly.

Visually reminiscent of a Rembrandt, ‘Alfie’ tells a surreal tale structured uniquely to simulate a dream experience, immersed in Freudian eroticism, sexual deviance and biblical notion of Baptism. Where as it has a second meaning also that is somehow pointing to a fact that women are still objectified by men. The Man on the screen is shown dominating which before climax is tried by women too. But the man oppresses her and tortures her. During her last breath she was in her wonderland of dreams and there what she witnessed was only the beauty of nature that she was created to see.
