In a school trip to the Cloister of Collegno, the biggest italian Insane Asylum closed in 1978, a class of teenagers visit the spaces as if they had been turned into a museum. Through the auxiliary help of an audio guide of apparently non-sense indications, the students shape a museum path which only exists around their steps.
