A man comes to pick up his son at his ex-wife’s house. Like every weekend, he waits at the entrance to her apartment building for his son to come downstairs. But this Saturday it takes a little longer because their son wants to finish watching a TV show. And so the separated couple starts talking again – via the intercom. Suddenly the former intimacy is back, the conversation almost turns into a flirt…
