Dusk, night and dawn in the eighteenth arrondissement in Paris. As we follow the relationship of two women, day progressively rises. Unsure whether they are actual bodies or spirits, the characters roam liminary spaces under the monstrous presence of the Basilica of Montmartre and encounter other figures in the streets and in the night sky. With their “feet apart” they simultaneously inhabit and escape their embodiments.
