Chute (Strangers), produced by ECAL and Golden Egg Productions

In an anonymous city, a person collapses, pretending to lose consciousness. Strangers pass by, others embrace him. In solitary search of intimacy, blinded by a universe of indifference, her gaze, her body are wavering. A gracefully choreographed gesture.
