“Chile” tells the story of Elmer. He lives in a glass fortress under the sea, surrounded by a chorus of poetically verbose whales. He knows he is responsible for the end of the world, but he can’t quite remember why or how.
Star is the former porn actress sent to have sex with Elmer. Or get him out of there… Well, something to that effect. She can’t quite remember. Will she succeed, or will he continue to insist that she is a couch?
