This drama/dance film is set in a dystopian world and reflects a sense of post war depraved state of mind.
A woman visits a deserted old industrial building. Once there, she encounters two children. They lead her deeper inside the building and closer to their dark secret. What started, as an innocent game has suddenly become an odd ballet.
