Four people lock themselves in a gallery for twelve hours.
No fresh air, no sound from outside, the glass front window becomes a silent television screen and the actors are bored.
Some beer, some cake, a toilet and no cigarettes.
Time goes by, we wait.
A passerby stops now and again, and eventually the outdoor world starts to communicate within. We spectate our spectators.

Quatre personnes s’enferment dans une galerie durant douze heures. Sans fenêtre, sans son extérieur, la vitrine de la salle devient un écran de télévision muette, dans laquelle les acteurs s’ennuient. Le temps passe, on n’attend rien, les passants s’arrêtent parfois, on se met à communiquer avec l’extérieur, jusqu’à ce que la fenêtre soit saturée de papiers écrits, une série de messages muets au spectateur exclu.
