On a stormy night in a cramped urban apartment in 1973, a man's struggles between order and chaos collide and overtake him in this psychedelic trip of a film filled with dread, paranoia, and delusion.

Optic Nerve tells the story of a man returned from conflict and readjusting to the world around him. It speaks to the difficulty of moving past trauma and trying to find some sort of familiar structure in an unfamiliar world of chaos.
