I once was a sailor.
Today, I try to find my life on the continent.
Japanese cars imported in Russia are cut in halves and transported on ships. After being welded in Vladivostok, they are driven throughout Siberia, to their final destination.
The Halves is the journal of this trip: the car and I, looking for our motherland.
