The idea of escapology as entertainment is turned upside down in this video. A man trapped in the screen struggles to keep his head above water whilst attempting to escape. The camera is caught up in the event and as the title suggests the man is framed in a hopeless situation. The beginning and the end look the same, but something in the middle changes.
