19th century in Europe: A child climbs up a chimney while a bird sails down into it to build a nest. An encounter with no way back.
A chimney sweeper describes his everyday routine of forcing young kids to become workers. While we observe a kid cleaning a chimney, the master’s statement gets more personal with every sentence until we understand that he is speaking about his own past. Being locked in a vicious circle, there seems to be no exit.
