Filmed at 321 East 21st Street in Manhattan in a building that has since been torn down, this video is a drama in four acts. The characters are the sounds eminating from the interior of an uninhabited apartment. A conflict develops and builds in the traditional film manner, but all of the action takes place before anyone comes home. Lonesome and frenetic at the same time, it is an exercise in traditional editing against "actionless" action. All of the sound was made by the tenement building, recorded to 4 track, very lightly mixed and laid down as a soundtrack by which to edit.
