This short film examines possible forms of storytelling in an experimental context. It is about a woman who has split up her relationship and now tells her story to a friend, assembling fragments and pieces. Instead of weaving fabrics this modern model of Penelope is knotting and interweaving the text fragments to create the story. The figure was inspired by the figure of Penelope, Ulysses' wife, who now has become a voice as well as a story, whereas her partners do not appear throughout the film. The level of narrative is organised partly following the principle of the mise en abîme. The formal level also follows this principle and consists of fragmented images and reflexions.
