A film project produced under severe constraints. Five Québec women artists, coming from different art backgrounds, were brought together for seven days at a communal residency in the Studio national des arts contemporains le Fresnoy (France). This was their first experience shooting a 16 mm film and having to process film by hand in the bath. They had to write the script on the fly, while shooting in an unfamiliar place. The result is a meeting of sound and image, of real and imagined sites.
