This is a film about a long train trip, where the reception ebbs and flows, delaying communication, fragmenting our relationship, interspersed with whatever whiffs by outside the window of this plane or train or car, trying to memorize a distant country.

Space is defined by gorgeous geometric interplay and beautiful solarized landscapes and by the distance between text messages. The unexplainable sublime interrupted by the banality of communication. It’s sort of the way the avant-garde has to evolve with our experience and existence.
