This film is part of Yu Shimizus Carte Blanche, a Tokyo-based art film curator.

Eiko has repeated flashbacks from her childhood. In that place, where she is enveloped by a huge noise, a boy starts running and Eiko falls off a swing. Are these memories or dreams, or are they the present day, or do they belong to someone else. The sound expands. That’s really something huge.
