Synopsis:
September, and an Israeli couple moves into a building located above a supermarket in the Meguro district of Tokyo. The apartment window overlooks a temple adjacent to a funeral home and a busy intersection. It’s raining and hot, and the air conditioner in apartment 905 can not beat the humidity, so this couple goes down and starts walking. And so every morning for the next three months, the two of them go down the elevator of the building, out into the street, and walk in ever-widening circles, talking and watching, and sometimes he takes out a small pocket camera, directing it to something in the world – usually to another person – And taking photographs. And in the end, after this couple returns to Tel Aviv, a kind of cinematic diary – part truth – consisting of long Shots, music and Voice Over connects
the images to each other.
