In this short experimental film, a man roams restlessly around a house, without sleeping, sitting down or speaking. On his way, he encounters a man sitting frozen in his chair. Like a statue, he lets everything go by, unable to react. The space has its own rhythm. It seems as if time elapses faster than normal.
