An extremely personal film, in which the film maker plays herself and reveals her thoughts about her lover, while trying to fathom his. The dialogues are realistic and based on the actual conversations within her relationship. She has a difference of opinion with her lover about the possibilities of knowing the other. He thinks that the other, in a way, will always remain a stranger, but in her film she tries to prove the opposite. An atmospheric ego-documentary that balances on the brink of fiction.
