With a detached gaze, the film captures what it feels like to be at a construction site, along with the sense of uncertainty and powerlessness that weighs on the construction workers.

In a closed and depressing environment as such, the variation of sound and space is the only way for people underground to feel the gradual lapse of time. These laborers work day in day out, like Sisyphus being punished in Greek mythology.

The cold building resembles not only a spider web in appearance but also a jail in essence.
