Młody człowiek pracujący w garażu, ubrany w kapelusz i trencz, kieruje samochody do poszczególnych wyjazdów. Precyzyjna choreografia przypomina pełen siły taniec. Rodzaj obrazu i ścieżki dźwiękowej znosi granice; świat zewnętrzny i wewnętrzny zlewają się.

A young parking garage attendant with hat and trench coat and long arms conducts the cars to the one or other exit. The precise operation appears like the choreography of powerful dance. The character of images and the musical composition annihilate boundaries, outside world and inner merge.
