Between the pulsating city and the standstill of the people, a young man is looking for his place in society.
Pressure is showing his journey from the drug ridden nightlife to the unfair music scene. Everywhere his search is taking him he ́s facing restrictions, compulsions and pressure. His journey ends when he starts questioning everything he fought for while hitting rock bottom.
The movie is a mirror of modern society where uniqueness is diabolized, where striving for freedom is something uncommon and where chasing your dreams is not cool anymore. To show all this we chose to let the action take place underwater so that the main character is literally oating through the environment. The story is told by a poem-like monolog and the emotions are expressed through the body language of the protagonist.
