Synopsis
What divides us and what keeps us together? Maybe, both questions have the same answer. The body revealing itself to the mind. Mind to space. Space, a house without walls from which its inhabitants cannot get out. Confinement in what seems an open place. People which are as objects to a place.  A place as a body from which they cannot get out. The body, a group of membranes, the tissue that contains us. The fear that this tissue might not contain us anymore. A giant’s skeleton appears.
