While she is practicing yoga, he is looking at his phone. When he sits behind a desk, she goes to the kitchen to prepare a shake. They live under one roof and keep passing by each other all the time. Repetitive actions absorb them to such an extent that they fail to notice each other. Suddenly, their daily life starts to accelerate and spin. The protagonists and their rituals are revolving around each other as if they were celestial bodies and their flat becomes the centre of the universe. This black and white animation is as griping as a thriller and the only colourful elements are an eye of a gecko and the lenses of the woman’s glasses.
