A monotonous silence envelops a group of men and women who are each standing still in front of their houses in a residential area. As the camera moves among them, they fall, one by one, in a random pattern. Their collapses are clearly irrevocable. The movement of the performers from immobility to choreographed descents is a contemporary reinterpretation of the macabre dance of the Middle Ages. The film questions the fatality of the human body and our individual and collective responsibilities in our complex time.
