From supervising boardgames and having a haircut, a man (Farooq Gul) escapes his fragmented life. A cyclic environnement stages repetitive gestures done by ubiquitous characters. Everything is a loop. One of them will soon disappear and be replaced (Arttu Palmio). As the camera visits forests, clubs, exhibitions and flat-sharing lives, a painting from Magritte ’La voix du sang’, staging a tree with holes, appears as a recurring pattern.
