A window washer reflects on his life as he spends his days hanging from the heights. What he sees behind the windows as he cleans them, the lives he wishes he had and his tragic, lonely past mix together in a bleak, agonizing present. This is a tale with multiple threads: the personal story of the window washer, a love story, the search for his father, the teacher who disappeared, and a journey of self-discovery. It is also a story of mystery having to do with what is happening on the seventh floor.
