Two men are dangling outside a skyscraper in a Western city. The men are refugees from war and have agreed not to talk about the past. They focus on their job washing windows, in plain sight of the well-dressed business people on the other side of the glass, suspended between a world they can see but cannot join, between a past scarred by violence and an uncertain future.
