Everyone is dwelling on the edge, literally- on the roof of a high building ready to jump into the abyss of a happier reality.
A group of acquaintances meet on the roof of a building where they witness a friend jumping from another roof. They scrutinize the dirty city, desperately reflect on life and being confident in their friend’s decision jump all together holding hands. Whilst falling past the hideous, time-worn façade of the building, a new scene discloses the prison of the prefabricated blocks of flats. In each cell somebody has hidden away from the world languishing in the next insurmountable personal crisis- the widow, the unemployed, the manqué writer, the lonely wife, a young couple, the football fan…
Life goes on in the spiral of identical actions, identical words, identical noise, identical wrath. The street- the inevitable curse- where the rich scoff and humiliate the poor. They will collect from the trash bins what they need to celebrate New Year’s Eve. These tired-of-living people are the last remaining here!
