The voice from the radio arouses Celestials longing for the outside, a place that frees him from the claustrophobic closeness to his mother. The blind, grown-up son makes Vox, the voice, his companion: sometimes it clarifies, sometimes it blurs the boundaries between care and abuse, desire and contempt, love and dependence on which mother and son, Sabbath and Celestial, move. The stuffy system of this constellation is lived in full consistency by these two aged and forgotten by the world; a consequence whose uncanny shadow is reminiscent of vows: two should belong to each other forever. In language images condensed into poetic still lives, the author Zainabu Jallo describes the narrowness of a home that shows traces of a togetherness that has lasted for half a century. What remains is the scepticism whether the outside, this place of longing, is not a beautiful, but all-devouring infinity.
