Two Americans have stumbled into the tiny, winding streets of the walled cities of Europe. Trying to guide each other through the maze - both physical and linguistic - they discover they've lost a few things along the way: their language, their balance, and their sense of self. This miniature duet explores the relationship between a man, a woman, and their sometimes baffling surroundings.
