The video presents a story of two women: one circulates the streets of Montreal, the other is grounded and standstill in her private space. The images of women dwelling within the exterior and interior spaces are
complemented by a narration recounted with a female voice. The poetic story is doubled up by an echo-like delay on a second audio track. This fact emphasizes the ambiguous character of the subject as one and/or many. The 2:30 minute long text is recounted mainly in English, but there are three short audio segments where Polish, Italian, English and French sentences are pronounced simultaneously creating an uncanny
audio-cacophony. This new non-language enriches the ideas of walking on one hand, and on being grounded, on the other.
