Giulia is a young woman who works as a dishwasher in a restaurant. One evening, as she is leaving, her eyes meet those of the cook, a colored man who works in the back of the restaurant, just like her. At home she has to explain away her husband's incomprehensions. The next day, Giulia is again in the kitchen of the restaurant. It is just her and the cook in the big room. Without a word, the two look at each other and embrace.
