The story is about a man, who is standing at the window of his office in a highrise. He watches a twin brother who is climbing up the outside stairs of an adjacent office building. As if lost in a Piranesi engraving the man ascends the stairs of a building continuously and when he thinks he has made it to the top, he only finds out that he has to start all over again.
