In Alexis Mouyiaris' first and last film (the actor portraying Conor passed away before the film's completion), Conor and Addison trudge through their failing relationship as they realize suddenly that they are trapped. Working together in an attempt to escape what seems like their last day together, they realize just how much animosity they have for one another. Of course, they've done this time and time again: the animosity turns into delusion, which then of course turns back into love, which then of course turns back into animosity. As they exist in this microcosm, as they relive the entire arc of their relationship in a smaller cycle, they can't help but feel like the monotony is permanent. But, something has to give. Life of Significant Soil explores the layers of a dying love, attempts to uncover the arcs of every relationship, and mystifies ladybugs arbitrarily.
