Synopsis:


When children learn written language, parts of their memory are erased. They are overwritten.

In the summer of 2020, the comet NEOWISE passes "close" to the sun - visible from Earth. For a few weeks it is clearly visible in the night sky, before it hides again in the depths of space for more than 6800 years. Following this mystery, the film accompanies the twins Ada and Levi through an urban landscape, lacking in function, into an unreal jungle that only wants to obey the cycle of water.
