Delimitation synopsis:

A young woman is looking for an apartment in busy metropolis, while overcoming ubiquitous alienation and trying to find closeness. Film uses combination of stylized movements and expressive dance to discover new forms of film language with emphasis on the role of sound and picture more than dialogue. As she explores the spaces, a new meaning is given to seemingly banalities of everyday life. Physical dialogue with the void begins as the question of space identity in an anonymous cityscape
