The story deals with the events in the lives of Zeno and Rossana, immersing the spectator in the sentimental apathy that marks todays relationships. He is a night watchman and she is a musician. When they move to Rome for work reasons, things are already bad between them, and the change only worsens their sentimental inertia. In fact they begin to live in two different temporal dimensions: Rossana locks herself up in their home as if it were a cage, while Zeno spends his nights doing rounds across the city with his lively and easy-going colleague Tom. Zenos friendship with Tom, and particularly with Ela, a young foreign barmaid, is a comfort for him, but also create significant inner turmoil
