A black-and-white documentary essay on boundaries in and outside the frame.

Synopsis

The film starts as a voice message to an unknown person who the director is recording in a train nearing a boundary until the connection is interrupted. Approaching the boundary of the country is transformed into searching for the boundaries of cinema and its own existence. The camera produces the atmosphere of a stretchy, but difficult to perceive time. The documentary shots of the cities that exist now are combined with the shots of the same cities and people who passed away, captured 25 years ago by the director’s father. The space of four cities and dozens of years fade away and eventually converge at one point – the black screen. The journey is accompanied by the glimmering voice of the author who continues to record the voice message to an invisible person on the other side.
