It’s nighttime, the town seems desolate. Cars are going by in an even pace but no people are out. The storefronts and neon signs of the psychics beckons like temples with luring promises.

The voices of older women reading a younger woman breaks the silence. Hearing about her and not from her she might be a reflection of ourselves feeling lost and seeking guidance. And all we see are the neon lit displays announcing the activity at hand.

Then comes a change, mise-en-scene like tableaus of a young woman engaged in everyday things but coming across as a slightly aimless wanderer. Walking in the woods, playing pinball, working on a car, doing laundry in a laundromat, sleeping or eating. It’s like her movements and actions are done mechanically. Having something to do. Keeping occupied.

Being read and dissolving more and more. The absurdity of the context increasing with every prediction. Looking for answers but losing herself piece by piece.

To be defined is to be erased. A new start.
