Concept: - Story:
    Me on a certain day sitting at my untidy desktop in my untidy room in
    Vienna. I am looking into a little mirror to draw a self portrait.
    The remote-control release on the laptop keyboard activates the
    camera on the left. The laptop screen is showing the photo the camera
    has taken of me. Through the open window we can see two windows
    in diffenrent levels of the oppsite building. The boy in the lower window and
    and the old man in the upper window are looking at me.
    The arrow on the laptop screen shows a date: 'Friday, 24. May 2013' - my
    birthday. I am looking at myself in the mirror at the age of 40. The boy in
    the lower window of the opposite building is portrait of myself when I was
    around 12. The person in the upper window of the opposite building is how
    I see myself as an old man.
