Exploring the relationship between reality and trickery, between the concrete event and its fiction, the directors have fun simulating and extrapolating what is from what could have been. They realize a little more clearly every day that they are involved in a dead-end problem, which turns out to be the very meaning of their practice, and which must be kept secret at all costs. In this film, an artwork examines its own existence after being abandoned in the Sahara desert, opening up a reflection on objects, mirages, and the edges of reality. An original concept and artistic experience and a trip to unknown ground.
