Bas Devos's award-winning new film reflects on the connections humans make in a world that doesn't stop turning.

Stefan (Stefan Gota), a Romanian construction worker living in Brussels, is on the verge of moving back home. After making the decision to move, he cooks up a big pot of soup (with leftovers in his fridge) to hand out as a goodbye gift to friends and family.

In the process, he meets the Belgian-Chinese ShuXiu (Liyo Gong) who works in a little restaurant while preparing a doctorate on mosses. The attention that ShuXiu gives her near-invisible subject enchants Stefan, leading the pair to go on to explore the minutiae of the everyday.
