SYNOPSIS

The title speaks for itself. Elusive but captivating interplay of two silent figures brings questions about how you place yourself in contact with others and how others perceive you. The context of the conflict is withheld, allowing a viewer to face his/her own emotions and reasons. The setting acts as a hall of mirrors, so each person and movement exists across time and space in several places at once. This story tells that human identity with its perceptions and reflections, is a many-sided and fascinating phenomenon.
