The film is about an old man who lives in a submerged town. As the water rises, he’s forced to add additional levels on to his home with bricks (cubes) in order to stay dry. One day he drops his favorite pipe into the lower levels of his home. In the search for another pipe, he decides to purchase a wetsuit instead to use as he dives down to retrieve his original pipe. As he moves downwards through the different stories of his home, he relives scenes from his life.
