Experimental animation film in which sellotape rolls undergo a lengthy process of development and degeneration. The slow life tempo of the objects is disclosed in an isolated room, where everything is based on a symmetrical composition. From this ordered state, differences in behaviour are slowly made visible by gravity. Although this results in unpredictable forms and movements, they still feel familiar.
