After being kidnapped by aliens, copy shop employee Harijs Bērziņš doesn't quite feel at home in his skin. His unusual experience slowly but surely turns him into an outcast, family and friends suddenly feel like strangers, and even the mysterious ufologist Vilma doesn't exactly elicit his trust. While the two of them try to find a common language, the gray alien mother gives birth to Harijs's child... He Was Called Chaos Bērziņš combines a playful style with a love of experimenting with form and material. Latvian director Signe Birkova cleverly reworks old sci fi clichés, placing them into new and fresh contexts.
