The Central theme of this Film is an encounter in a strange World. A Labyrinth of inner Reflections, longing and cynical, conscious of form and form-dissolving. A variety of confusing stories, objektive and subjektive between the outside, the inside, space and time. A poetic system of mysterious metaphors.
