An observational exploration of routine, monotony, attention and distraction.

Using a rule-based, rhythmical structure, the film elevates the mundane, personal and relatable aspects of life whilst offsetting them with more serious, global issues which continually seep in to our lives, becoming commonplace.

Will we continue to let events pass us by uncontested, or will we decide to break the cycle?
