SYNOPSIS: A meditation on a young Danish woman’s loneliness in an urban environment, mostly contained to a courtyard apartment. Days unfold in the manner of a cubist painting as she drifts amongst a group of males, as the mundane rhythm wears on and threatens to suffocate. The film compels the viewer to slowly acquaint themselves with the protagonists from an almost dreamlike vantage point, allowing us to focus on moments that are often lost or ignored by traditional narrative structures.
