Brief synopsis

A bare, functional working world with clear lines. Lonely places of symmetry in an overcrowded metropolis. People in its midst who are on their ways, doing something but never arriving.
And always female breasts as a place of longing – for desire, for safety, for mother’s love.
The movie is shifting between documentary observation and dense staging.
