A contemplative ode to the home. The home as a centre of everyday routine and relationships. The home with all it's comings and goings. The home as a centre of unions and separations.The home as a centre of life that shelters its inhabitants from a wedding, a funeral, fireworks... Each character who lives, passes, enters or leaves the home, each room plays it's own role.
