Waterfall tells a special kind of love story: a young women, who is in love with Marcel Duchamp, sets out on a journey to find the spirit of the dead artist. As time passes, the reality of her daily life increasingly fuses with the realm of the artist's exceptional works and thoughts.

Waterfall approaches the question of how we love: is it the person we love or their qualities? Do we just love without expecting anything in return or are we longing for the feeling of being loved? What or how do we love if we love someone who no longer has a solid physical body?

With the outstanding example of Marcel Duchamp, as one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, Waterfall sounds out the idea of hauntology as a nature of being that inherently embeds both past and present: the ghost of Marcel Duchamp returning to haunt us. Throughout the short film, several references to Duchamp´s body of work lift a subtle layer of virtual reality, connecting the main character's everyday world with the deceased artist´s deepest thoughts and desires.
