Upstairs-downstairs neighbors Dan and Mia have never met, but the thin floor between their apartments offers its own kind of intimacy. In an alternative reality where sounds – and the sensory memories that accompany them – can be captured in food storage containers, Dan approaches Mia with a proposal. He offers some of the sounds of his life in exchange for some of the sounds of hers. As their surreal exchange unfolds, they visit the sounds that have defined their romantic relationships for good and ill, and wonder if the most difficult memories are meant to be shared.
