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 a dreamlike vantage point, allowing us to focus on moments that are often lost or ignored by traditional narrative structures.
