This entire film is an attempt by the filmmaker Romain Groupil to answer a (fictional?) letter from a former girlfriend, who has asked him when (if ever) he will make a good film. His response to this is to travel to places in Europe and the Mediterranean, as if to say "there are so many more important and painful things going on in the world, how can it matter whether or not I make any kind of film, much less a good one?" On the Gaza strip, he witnesses a confrontation between Palestinian youths wielding stones against a group of heavily armed Israeli soldiers. In Sarajevo, he follows a Serbian actress who is disturbed by the war in Bosnia, until she irritatedly shoos him off. Then he speaks to a fellow filmmaker in that city, who mourns the destruction of the multiculral society of his home.
