    Brief synopsis

    On the first look Mr. Kremer's life looks tight and sad. He is unemployed and lives in a tiny flat in the middle of a big city. But if he goes within, he enters the portal to another world. This journey he cannot separate from the external world. An inner voice guides him and lets him predict numbers, which often leads to bizarre situations. The atmospheric film allows the viewer to participate, in the floating perception of the protagonist, and in the discovery of his inner dimension.
