A story about two people who, as a result of dramatic experiences, descend to the sphere hidden below the surface of everyday life. They immerse themselves in a world of emotions, instincts and deepest desires. Fortune favours the protagonists, but they seem to fight against their happiness. Chance entwines with fate. A film about regaining belief in love.
