Three languages: on the left side of the screen a young man seated on a chair is telling, in German, a story about migration, which a women on a chair on the right side of the screen is telling in English. A voiceover is recounting the same autobiographical story in Slovak. The split-screen technique is used so that the man, woman and the voice, though isolated, relate to each other. In this three-voice spoken round, a personal story is recovered and repeated, and becomes universally valid. At the same time the film is about the possiblity and limits of adopting language and a new culture.
