A man comes before a steamed mirror to wash his face. The mirror clears but the reflection in it reveals not only the real, but also invisible activity. Out of the man washing his face comes he himself with his different features, all of which disappear into thin air. When he is done washing his face, the man looks up in the mirror and goes away. His reflection watches him go and disappears into the frozen mirror.
