At the beginning of a particularly cold winter, a young man is struck by an apathy as strange as it is sudden, and accepts that he may never leave his house again.
As a means of a mute video journal, this movie relates that period of stopped time, of boredom, of unreality... which he fills day after day by the commonplace spectacle observed through the rear window of his apartment.
Shifting images, hazy sonorities, troubled visions often altered by the distorted panes... these sequences silently narrate the story of someone I might have been.
