A clip of footage of a hotel-room TV, during the artist's visit to Egypt. A famous Egyptian actress is re-captured, re-edited, in a sequence of close-ups, placed in cuts and repetition, in a contemplative conversation with herself. Accompanied by a piano soundtrack, the displaced emotional pathos extracted from this meditative scene is interrupted by the appearance of identical twins, who look at each other concealing an ominous expression.
