– shut the door please!
– it is shut.
– where’s the draft coming from, then?
– your imagination.

THE WIND is a story of a woman who cannot shout. Instead she bites her hands to the bones. From the open window a violent wind enters and together they start to work on things. The woman disarranges everything in her room, giving a new purpose and order to things, until she controls every detail in her empire of the reason.
