He spies with his little eye something that is... you. - Security cameras inside the movie theatres and homeless sleeping in front of the cinema building. Jannik is a film projectionist. During his shifts, he sits behind the screen and observes the few visitors. He would rather be seen on the screen himself. When he interacts with people, the line between game and reality becomes blurred. And he just cannot get rid of the homeless.
