A leaking sink progressively inundates a furnished apartment. The rising water awakens the objects in the space, which enter into a slow ballet. The water withdraws and everything returns to its place, before the whole process restarts. The film progressively divorces from ‘reality’ and the soundtrack drifts farther away. We approach the entrails of the cyclical system below the décor – a glimpse into the mechanics of the everyday.
