A forest hermit tries to prepare for a flood, but he becomes distracted by his noisy neighbour – who happens to be the hermit’s left eye. What follows is a meditation on worry and the potential consequences of obsession. The Flood is Coming explores the growing anxiety about the state of nature and our place in it. It also considers how people can appear to blindly seek conflict as they approach adversity.
