When cities fly

High above the roofs of Amman, the capital of Jordan, the camera follows objects that fly: People standing on the roofs of their houses guide their kites into the air, small flocks of birds circle the sky. Towards the second half of the film the camera finds a group of young children playing in the remains of a torn down building. Instead of kites they only have empty plastic bags which they try to get up into the air. The camera comes closer and begins to interact with the children.
