DescriptionRachel is a Jewish woman, in her early forties, living alone in a small council flat in a tower block in the city. She never leaves the flat and has retreated into a life of repetitive domestic ritual. The film depicts this routine by showing Rachel standing at the window, Rachel tidying, making the bed, polishing, Rachel boiling an egg, throwing away the food she has carefully prepared and will never be eaten. The death of her mother causes Rachel to become obsessively fixated on the actions of two men searching for treasure on the building site opposite, and finally to leave her flat and explore the site for herself.
