Night. Around 10pm. A young woman dives into her memories of an ex-lover, recalling dream-like images and sounds. While writing about the end of the affair she intensively revivifies it, reliving it all over again, all the way back until the day they met. Unexpectedly, she then reaches an answer she had not been looking for.
