A tightwire artist, two dancers, a trampoline duo and a dancing clown meet on an architectural set that depicts a derelict building’s rooftop.
While delicate relationships tenderly and brutally entwine, a strange transformation happens to the roof itself enhancing the sense of a warped reality and other worldliness unfolding.
