    • Synopsis
    • A young couple settles down in a large abandoned industrial warehouse. An orange strip, glued to the floor, partitions the area in two equal portions: to the right, his sculpture atelier; to the left, her dance studio. Little by little, he begins to encroach into her area with his sculptures. After which she in turn begins to sneak into his space, using his sculptures as props in her choreographies. One day, she notices a steel cable connected to one of the warehouse girders leading out to a window, and to the streets, seeming to trace a path through the city. A secret he doesn’t want to talk about. At the same time, an urge to have a child begins to grow in him.
