After an argument with her leading actress, an overworked director sees her team’s morale put to the test. The play they rehearse on stage in adverse conditions highlights dramatic issues of our times. Meanwhile, a man with unclear intentions roams the city. His journey echoes the themes of the play: a world numbed by media saturation, the rise of extremism and the tragic plight of refugees.
