How much space does a person inhabit on this planet? What happens with these physical and mental spaces that one person leaves when he/she is not present anymore? The short movie 'absent' takes an experimental look at these empty spaces.
The images examine the left over traces and go in search of the absent person. Out of the Off the absent person is speaking him/herself reading his/her farewell letter. He/she puts himself in the position of the person who is left, answers questions about the empty spaces and prosaically analyzes his/her absence.
