AN ESCAPE FROM MEDIOCRITY.
THE SACRIFICE FOR A DREAM.
A LIFE OF ILLUSION.
"WE DON’T ACHIEVE GREAT THINGS WHEN WE’RE COZY AND HAPPY.
IT MAKES US TREMENDOUSLY DETERMINED WHEN WE AREN’T."
As Erik (Houdini) strives for the top, his pernicious obsession to prove that ordinary people can do extraordinary things grows exponentially to the point where danger is no longer just an illusion. Albeit every sign uproariously warns him to reconsider his decisions in life, his desideratum to become “someone” outgrows him.
When he has his last chance to restore everything, he realizes that his mission must be to set an example of passion, self-belief, discipline and to continue his life-long commitment.
Erik tenaciously continues his path and accepts his fate that although people will possibly remember him as the greatest, he let the most important thing disappear around him: life.
