(The Clock Tower)

Receiving a key from a stranger, a clockmender journeys to a small town to repare the clock in the clock tower where a woman he encounters impresses him a great deal. He witnesses a murder by the lake and some strange events begin to take place around him. While he gradually gets passionately attached to the woman, he tries to resist the pressure of the threats of her husband. Despite all, the clockmender is determined to unveil the truth behind the mysterious sequence of events where past and future merges into present. The concept of time does not exist anymore. A corpse reflects a vague span of time. A lake, a mirror.
