Heavily inspired by the French film 'Naissance des Pieuvres' by Céline Sciamma, the shoot plays on the intimate and insecure sexual awakenings of a teenage protagonist. As in Schiamma's work, the story uses the water as a medium for expressing an effeminate connection with the viewer.

The literal translation of the film's title - meaning 'Birth of the Octopuses' also directed a metaphorical play with identity. The octopus, an intelligent and sensible mollusk, contains three hearts, can change appearance through colour and texture and be both playful and venomous.
