Mezzanine is the third story of the omnibus feature 6/6, about six seemingly different young women who live in geographically different locations in apparently different circumstances, but have a shared experience of the world of intimacy. Mezzanine is set in an alienated city ruled by the merciless principles of corporate society. A young woman allows herself to be reduced to mere human flesh, as it is the only way to play the game of survival. Her mother encourages her to enter this merciless world, aware that her child is being irreversibly damaged. The two women play a silent game the main goal of which – solving the problems of existence – is achieved; yet they both realize that the consequences will be hard to ignore.
