This psychological, interpersonal look at the turmoil of a movie director combines sequences of both fantasy and reality to create an often indistinguishable line between the two. The director has been married for ten years, but after he begins an affair with another woman, his illicit love turns his life upside-down and threatens to destroy his marriage. His angst plays out against the background music of Frederic Chopin and a beautiful landscape, adding poetic elements that reinforce his inner, philosophical discourse.
