Moth tells the story of a woman going through a moment of transformation. During her journey she encounters other people experiencing different levels of the same path. Some are already transformed, some are contemplating the idea of change, others try to resist it, and she dives into it. During the whole trajectory, an outside observer narrates how a metamorphosis occurs, giving the viewer a better understand of change and nature.
