Laura (Sandra Ceccarelli) and Stefano (Luigi Lo Cascio) are two actors who are working together in a 19th-century costume film. Laura is a young actress, and almost unknown in the cinema world, while Stefano, who is already famous but unsatisfied, he is acting in this costume film after an unsuccessful movie. They start an off-screen relationship that resembles the film plot, in which it seems they can communicate only with the words of their film characters.
