The body bound in a marriage relationship is not always the happy one, but also the wounded one. Tossed about. Destroyed. However, there is always a cure for a wound: love. Njelmo (Shapeshifting) is a work inspired by the classic Javanese romance Inu Kertapati and Candra Kirana. It is a story about the bittersweetness of married life. Not everyone can go through it, except those with a strong heart. Loss leads to the realization that the meaning of presence is so important.
