Stefan, a construction worker living in Brussels, is ready to leave town. As a farewell gesture, he boils up a large pot of vegetable soup and crosses the city sharing farewell meals with friends. Then, during his final days in the city, he meets Shuxiu, a woman working in a small family restaurant who is preparing her doctorate in microbiology. The two share a walk together in a local park, and a connection blossoms amidst the mosses.
An enchanting, lyrical ode to sharing space in an urban center, Here observes the minute, multitudinous plant life that surrounds us all. Lush 16mm cinematography lends the film a beautiful earth-toned hue, as it ruminates on yearning for companionship in a world teeming with invisible life.
