"There are others in my body” appears at the end of the difficult-to-read text shown during the first few minutes of the film. Using a mirror, intimate camera shots, and various poses, Grigorescu ex-plores the folds of his own body, its forms and deformability, examining the range of the gender spectrum. The interior footage is complemented by insistent camera footage of the facades of Bucharest’s houses.

Ion Grigorescu (1945), a media artist and creator of performances for the camera, created photographic series and films in the 1970s, many of which can be classified as self-portraits. Using imaging technologies, he attempted to break the body out of conventional conceptual frameworks.
