The nightly view of a resort beach, looks like an abandoned, dystopic scenery, full to the brim with trash.
The beach janitor's flashlight randomly falls on a young woman that lays in the dark taking it easy sipping beer. She decides to head towards the water for a night swim, leaving her can trash behind without a second thought. In the beach janitor’s head, an imaginary battle unfolds.
The woman gets entangled in fishing nets made out of pure light. As much as she struggles to disengage it and stay afloat, the more she gets surrounded and choked by trash, luminous trash projected on the sea surface, in the cleaner’s imagination.
ConScience is a social comment on ocean and sea pollution.
The plot alternates between the realistic and the imaginary, focusing on this major environmental issue, its consequences and how it affects or should affect our conscience and stance. The movie unravels through the eyes of a beach janitor. He represents the awaken person, the one that selects an active role in dealing with the destruction of our habitat and wants to fix it, but nevertheless despairs by the indifference of most people and the very sense of vanity that comes with that understanding.
The plot develops during a summer night, at a resort beach, where the human daylong presence has left its obvious marks. The fishing net and the trash are "imagined" on the surface of the sea, as well as on the female body, exaggerating the "obviousness" of the problem and our incapacity to look at it at take it seriously.
