Joey make use of generic stories in a motel room and questions the supposedly forensic gaze. A selection of case studies are intertwined by the presence of anecdotal objects in a random motel room in the United States. The narration is reconstructed from the archives of Texas Courts records. It reconstitutes the chamber place in an ambiguous state between crime scene and witness scene, in which the viewer becomes an engaged moral actor. The objects, the room and the voice-over embody a space of suspicion and slowly evolve towards a grotesque duality between the obvious and the unsaid.
