    A woman returns from abroad. In her state of jetlag, she finds herself falling between the gaps of the past and present.

    In long, poetic shots, sorrow and loneliness are tangible. With the film, Hui has created a small-scale drama that evokes questions but does not answer them.

    Throughout the presentation of the narrative, Hui is interested in images that are uneasy of themselves – images that seem to want to be other images. With a Heideggerian ontological concern in mind, Hui pushes each image to the horizon of being and non-being, and of truth and illusion.
