Diptych, one screen mounted above the other.

Two protagonists, seen only through their images reflected in water, bend repeatedly down into the water, towards each other, becoming more and more tormented as they do so. The water acts as a kind of metaphor for an intense emotional baptism. From the group of works know collectively as 'The Passions'.
