A dream causes pieces of an affair that the two protagonists have gone through to emerge. The music mixes with the images in a tangle of frightening, insecure, and angry feelings. There are bursts of nervous energy that go out into the void that leave room for the characters' weakness and tenderness. One can notice that this must have been an affair with a great emotional impact, but something that was in some way absent, missing, fleeting, and unexplained.

"Traces of a story with very vivid overtones. Weak connections. The use of different shooting and editing techniques. An attempt to tell through a dream the things that the two protagonists did not say in any other way" (Antonio Dell'Oso).
