What does engaging in conversation really mean?
Is it an exchange of thoughts, ideas and feelings? However, does it really get through to reach the other party?
What we have instead is a beautiful culmination of slippages, confusions and ambiguities embedded in dialogues.
Acknowledging that perhaps authentic exchanges rarely happen in conversations, this film aims to, instead, capture miscommunication: the external and inner realities that take place simultaneously in a simple exchange.
Purposely disruptive, the things spoken and left unspoken seem inseparable, leaving the viewer to contemplate the true nature of conversation.
