Program #9

Once upon a time, there was a goddess of enchanting charms and beauty.
Born from the waves of the Ocean, Venus lies on the sand like a shell, completely naked. Her body slowly comes back to life such as a wounded bird. Swaying on the wet sand, she reaches for the Ocean, in an intimate and animal dance.
