Each video is each morning portrait of Teem, the filmmaker's partner. As winter approached in Thailand, Teem informed Apichatpong that he would start to hibernate until February 2008. As a result, the man sleeps a lot during this time. Apichatpong observed and sometimes disrupted his partner’s mission with a mobile phone.
