About

The film starts as a voice message to an unknown person which the director is recording in a train nearing a boundary until the connection is interrupted. Approaching the boundary of the country is transforming into searching for the boundaries of cinema and her own existence., The camera producing the atmosphere of a stretchy, but difficult to perceive time. The documentary shots of the cities exist- ing now are combined with the shots of the same cities and people who passed away, captured 25 years ago by the director’s father. The space of four cities and dozens of years are fading away and eventually converging at one point - the black screen.

The journey is accompanied by the glimmering voice of the author who continues to record the voice message to an invisible person on the other end.
