One man in a black suit jumps under his own power. Every jump is an attempt to escape his routine. In doing so, he hopes to redefine himself and his experience. Contemporary society is full of Jumping Men and Jumping Women, who repeat their actions, hoping each time to perform them better. With each summersault they try to reach higher, or at least not fall short of the previous mark. And they hope to make it appear easy, though it is not.
