Dream palace, temple of excess, or something totally different? The movie exposes closing hours and night time heartbeat of a Tallinn shopping mall – a place built to entertain and mirror the world. The ambiguity of the camera gaze and the immersive soundscape will confront the viewers with a raw materiality of fleeting encounters, circulatory systems and gradually transforming atmosphere. The dialogue-free sensory ethnography will invite you to question limit between the body and the world in one of the most vibrant urban ecosystems.
