This is one of several audiovisual experiments that juxtapose diary-style vlog footage with narratives derived from almost random daily scenes. Errors are exercises meant to be completed within 24-hours from shooting to editing and uploading and are designed to be seeds for potential narratives in The Perfumed Garden.

This particular Error (by the sea) starts from the Beirut corniche and ends in “heaven”—a leftover space behind Charles Helou bus station mainly used as an outdoor toilet for drivers and passengers in transit. Its absent character, Omeia, is a main character in The Perfumed Garden.
