A town, blocks of flats, flats getting rid of the insides they are made of. Ghostly piles of discarded things at the side of the road waiting for disposal. The director discovers reality in things that people left. As such, they represent the only assurance that the film will continue; through them the film can find fragments of past events.
Recurring images of objects that reflect the history - refrigerators, sofas, wardrobes. The things can remember. They are standing piled up in front of the houses, recreating a landscape made of distant people and family situations. The things are an opportunity to get in touch with those who are disappearing but not yet dead, but still fading away.
The things represent immobility; only those who are alive gather together and stay together before they come apart forever.
