A couple tries to find their common rhythm to conceive a child. She – a journalist who has reoriented herself to meditation and Feng Shui, in order to discover her inner harmony by ignoring what is evil and ugly in the world. He – a little-known actor, obsessed by the injustices and abuses around him. The decision to contact a former slave, released from a sheepfold, in order to create a theater performance with a social impact, makes the couple feel anxious while facing their immediate reality. Is it involvement or isolation? Is it trying to change the world or the detached look of the great show of life, full of contradictions and divergent interests?
