Orchid Head. An experimental research on female sexuality

A navel dances on the screen. Words like "Vaginism" are invented. A young woman's face disappears in the water of a bathtub. 

The above are just snippets of this experimental short film, inherently free of any traditional dramatic structure and rich in sensations and games.

It is the way in which a group of female filmmakers go in search of answers about the sexual dilemmas of one of them.
