Rockets In The Pockets

This story is about a person who reaches out to the light (or the light reaches out to him like an all-seeing celestial). In the nighttime and cold industrial landscape of Murmansk, he stalks other people, either before or after a traumatic event that occurred behind the scenes.

For what purpose does he do this? Are these people familiar to him, or are they random? How does this relate to the voice recording of a French woman from the small town of Arpajon, who recounts her brief manifesto?

Director Biography - Aleksei Shkatelov

My name is Aleksei Shkatelov. I was born in Murmansk, a dark, gloomy, and cold city by the Arctic Ocean. I am 26 years old.
Since the 2010s, I have fallen in love with movies. The first movie that changed my life was 'Funny Games' by Michael Haneke, which I watched when I was in either the sixth or seventh grade in high school.
