Somewhere on the mainland, the tenants of a building sleepwalk towards their windows to watch Sisyphos sweep away the fallen leaves. It's autumn. On the radio, a voice mentions Cortázar's aquatic endeavours. A series of drownings and disappearances connect the water supply system to a secret passage to the sea.



Over the course of a year and while the world was in lockdown, we had a series of shootings with amateur actors on location in old Berlin apartments threatened by gentrification. During this time we tried to explore the dynamic between the inside and the outside, with the single premise that there should not be more than one person allowed in each frame of the film. 

Inspired by the work of Julio Cortázar, who in this case becomes a fictional character, the film blends fact and fiction in an attempt to sense a world that lies somewhere between the mundane and the unreal.
