From the everyday bustle of an urban market, the camera pans inside. There, a man is dancing the same dance over and over, against a varying digitalised background. The dance, a repetition of the same steps, is shot in one flowing take. The music and the more and more laboured breathing indicate that the dancer tries to free himself from the burden on his shoulders.
