(HIDDEN TRACK)

Somewhere in the background of the grim reality an affair is lurking like a hidden track on a tape cassette. They live in the same block of flats. She’s surrounded by job ads, he’s followed by drunken friends. In the street she comes into contact with him, but he’s already heard her singing through the apartment walls. They are connected by a song and a love for juggling. In a discotheque they both get into trouble. But there is a chance of escaping together.
