A short film about both attraction and refusal of the unknown, inspired by texts about foreignness, exoticism and the uncanny in the self. In front of every door there's eerie things lurking- yet somehow they seem appealing. She makes up the unknown within spitting distance and finds strange places in her mind. One step after the other she enters a track toward an abandon place.
