And absurd story about the so-called `fluid thinking' of the Russian writer Daniil Charms, seen through the eyes of the young philosopher Danya. Two guards on the roof of the state publishing house in St Petersburg maintain order in the city. They follow closely the 'rules of the guard' that were formulated in the 1930s by Daniil Charms. One of the guards is the young philosopher Danya. He has a special, almost friendly, relationship with the dead Charms. He thinks about his work and tries to envisage how words can break a permanent gaze.
