Plot – Spoilers:
A crazy man lives on bare resources in a rundown bunker in what appears to be a post-apocalyptic world. He distills a high-proof and potent spirit from everyday eatables and knocks himself out of his loneliness, though he tries to perceive loneliness as a woman he’s in love with.

Into his world arrive a young girl and boy who look desolate and hungry. In exchange for a place to stay and eat, he puts them to work on an elaborate and fantastical project converting the ruins he lives in, into a surrealistic wonder made from cardboard, wood and tape. The girl is charmed by his ramblings and there is an instant bond between them while the boy is wary, yet powerless and emasculated.

We Are the Flesh with its ending leaves things open to interpretation but there is probably some God, Adam, Eve and Lucifer thing going on here as well.
