An era is ending and a new one is beginning, of which nothing is known yet.
A film about love and loneliness. Tales of imprisonment, stories of young and old people abandoned under the arcades, waiting on station benches or inside a bar; queuing at the office, or simply portrayed in their homes. All in a set of non-places between city and countryside that reflect the protagonists' state of limbo, waiting for a revelation.
