The film follows a construction photographer on the last day of his job on a newly-finished building in Seoul. Walking inside and outside of the building, the photographer is looking for one iconic image of an iconic building, while contemplating the possibility of such an image altogether. Experiencing the architecture of the building and its surrounding by following his moving body, the voice over reads the character's thoughts on the relationship between the built environment and its images, especially the entanglement of modern architecture and narrative cinema. The film is based on around 30 interviews with members of the architecture team at David Chipperfield Architects Berlin, about the future of the newly-finished building. It features real characters involved in the design and the construction of the building, notably the architect as the narrator and the main construction photographer as the actor. In this way, the film reflects on architecture and film as both imaginative endeavors that are dependent on capital and collective labor and have their limitations and inimitable qualities.
