“I have breakfast in the morning, I have lunch at noon, I relax in the afternoon and I sleep at night.” A portrait of a facility for asylum seekers in Kostelec nad Orlicí, Czech Republic. An attempt to busy oneself cutting out a wooden radio and memorizing Czech vocabs at a Czech lesson. What do you do all day? Solely static shots intensify the sense of waiting for a decision in a strange timelessness. The film was made as a second year practice at a FAMU workshop.
