Sinopsis / Synopsis:

Direct cinema and fiction intermingle in this silent portrayal of two lovers in a city being transformed by progress. We see them in the dark sitting on a rundown structure like leftovers of the night too exhausted to look back, or ahead. By day we see them engaged in their jobs separately as the structure they frequent, which is in the middle of a park under construction, carries on without them.
