A room with a balcony. The sun is shining. A woman misses a man. In her dreams the long shadows on the floor and walls are transformed into arms that hug her. A hand touches her hip and gently caresses her body. Fingers interlace with hers and subtly and quietly a body lures her into a dance. A poetic and sensual film about absence.
