This allegorical short video is about people who are constantly close but never meet. The video has a structuralist approach and plays with continuity of time and space. It also deals with the alienation of people when they are watching TV or going to work early in the morning. These are the times of the day when people find themselves in a hypnotic state. The walking scene was shot in one take at 06:30 a.m. when people go to work. This recording was then cut in the middle. The blue interior scene that comes at the end of the video was mirrored: red and blue colours symbolize male and female principles. The public sculpture Grounded Sun by Croatian Artist Ivan Kožarić is the place in this video where interiors and exteriors are bridged. This sculpture stands on the corner of a city block. At the same time, on the diagonal opposite corner of this square block, the real sun was rising, underlining both tangible reality and artificial reality. Unreality is further underlined by the fact that, as one character makes a circuit round the block, the other character passes him three times in the opposite direction.
