This film follows a man undertaking a series of seemingly routine tasks which become increasingly strange. He leaves the bar through the back door, into the centre of the building. It is here he enacts his idiosyncratic routine: the private projection of a small format film. As this quiet procedure ends, the man leaves the theatre and the viewer is left alone with a sense of obsession and solitude.
