Details shows a succession of scenes filmed in static shots, sometimes in black and white and sometimes in color. The spectator must construct their subject through a black mask. A word, different for each scene, is cut out within the mask: INSTEAD, BECOMING, CONTINUE, ALONE, UNKNOWN, FORGOTTEN, EXPECT... The drawing of letters seems to dig a hole in the black screen and lets one catch a glimpse of the scene shot by the artist.
