Description Two houses, perched on top of a mountain, stare at each other across a deep valley. Prompted by their alarm clocks, a woman and a man tell their story and talk about small things - the parquet floor zigzagging down corridors, the memory of mother's breasts, the first time they fell in love with each other as children. But these minutiae disguise a bigger story of horrific brutality in their village, of people's desire for order at the cost of humanity and of unfaltering loyalty which emerges painfully through the chit-chat.
