An out-of-work actor, suffering from a creative block, is offered a part: a tragicomic part in his own life. In exchange for a flat, he is to pick up a certain young woman, then pass her on to his employer. This indecent proposal drags the three protagonists into a world of fear, which they were previously able to hide from themselves and from others – fear of being someone ordinary.
