Each day of our lives brings us new encounters with our fellow-men: our paths cross, we see each other, and speak or don’t speak to each other. Then we walk away to the next encounter. Both chance and intention play a part in these encounters, and the consequences can remain like footmarks on the paths of our lives. The movie mingles 3 separate stories which take place over two days. The characters paths intersect, and they affect each-other unintentionally.

The three stories are united not only by the characters but also by re-readings of the same theme at different registers.

With the support of the Romanian Film Center, Finnish Film Foundations YLE Co-Productions, Starlink Media, Spoon Media, New Line Media.
