Downtown Brussels, in the former headquarters of the Solvay firm, a monumental building scheduled to be demolished, the artist Denis Meyers is looking to move on from a painful separation.
Alone in this huge labyrinth at all times, he obsessively spray paints the walls, doors, windows, roofs, cellars, drawings and texts found in 20 years of diaries like a ghost haunted by the past. At a pivotal moment in his sentimental and artistic life, Meyers revisits his memories, deals with his memory and tries to strike through his past life in the hopes of a new start.
The film suggests accompanying Meyers during this journey to the entrails of Solvay, from the origins of his project until the complete destruction of the building and therefore of his work.
We follow his evolution as a human being and as an artist, his quest for reconstruction, his confrontation with his memory and his past. The film draws the intimate portrait of an ordinary man who, after trauma, commits himself to a process of resilience that will bring him to realise something extraordinary.
