"In Lucem" is the story revolving around a man who, out of choice, confines himself to the walls of his room. It's an ordinary day when we find him amidst a mess of unwashed clothes, stale food, and clutter. His existence is echoed by the buzzing of a fly, symbolic of the stagnation he's willingly embraced.
The narrative takes a turn when our protagonist wakes up, picking up his phone and immersing himself in the digital world, ignoring the knocks at his door, and neglecting his surrounding mess. The fly - a silent observer - witnesses it all, as more flies join, overtaking the room and mirroring his growing disconnect.
The reality of his condition dawns on him only when his phone battery runs out, and he's left in the darkness of his room, now swarming with flies. He's unable to reach for help or escape, his complacency leading him to a point of no return.
"In Lucem" serves as a stark reminder of how our choices and the refuge we seek in technology can distance us from reality and ultimately trap us within our self-created bubbles. It's a visual depiction of how we often become oblivious to our gradual descent into isolation until it's too late. The film is a poignant portrayal of self-inflicted loneliness and the haunting consequences of inaction.
