Through a selection of excerpts from music, film and literature, the film opens a conversation that crosses the labyrinth of domestic violence and pain caused by ideals or circumstances. It deals with different attempts of living together, of nourishing connections towards people who passed away, in a wide reflection on our singular/plural condition. A conversation in which essay and poetry intertwine, wandering the blurred area where our solitary beings merge and the ambiguity of our intimate relational life begins.
