At the beginning the length is indicated: ten minutes. This changes into a clock that starts at zero and reappears on the screen towards the end. In the meantime, a man and later a woman walk from right to left in one continuous movement, along a succession of (computer-drawn) public spaces somewhere in Italy: a train station, market, street et cetera. Their (English) cell phone conversation suggests an imminent drama.
