Sommer heat in a suburb. Five people cautiously wind around their conflicted relationships: Merit grows distant from Eva, Lion has to let go of Rose, David tries to break free. They talk, but their words don’t meet. They play theatre, on stage, while rehearsing their lives. Fears of the futue and traces of violence permeate their present. How to be with each other when unconditionality begins to crumble?
