Images from memory of a person suffering from a palsy, after falling ill with the Polio virus in the early 60s. Afterwards, experts research the technique of his falling. A dark memory depicts the absurdity of the internal step-by-step manuals by which we live. “It’s like with a language. If we were always to remember all of the grammar rules, we wouldn’t be able to pronounce a single sentence properly.”

Expressive camera and fragmentary commentary underline the absurdity.
