Before being made of images, this film is made of voices. It’s a polyphony. Anonymous voices that intertwine and overlap, answer and contradict each other. A descent into the depths of a city, fragments of life found in the streets or through cracks in walls, a slow wandering through the secret strata of a neighbourhood… pieces of a puzzle that don't easily fit in with each other.

Time: towards the end of the “reconquest” of our cities, when fragile glass towers prospered on the ruins of relocated industries.
Actors: some individuals, with conflicting interests, living in the midst of a development project that towers over them all, even those with the highest rank.
The map of a sample of the world is sketched before our eyes.
