Male and female voice-overs clash in telling the biographical story of an artist: one speaks in a monotone through media-defined stereotypes, while the other speaks in a playful, defiantly personal, way. The film returns to the same cycle of images and scrolling texts to reveal that a person’s story can depend on who is telling it.
