Synopsis

We see two people standing in a light grey room. A slender woman of 50 and a 12-year-old boy. They are joined togetherlike the links of a chain, their arms entwined, clasping their hands behindeach other’s backs. They change position at a constant rate. One flowing movement. Never losing touch with each other. A game played by a mother and her child. A kind of tango. The sound of feet. Breathing. And faint smiles. Until suddenly the woman’s hands let go of each other.
