One man longs to be loved and builds his world around films.
The other is a revolutionary who distrusts the world around him after suffering for too long.
Between them, an imaginary woman wields her magic and turns the impossible into the possible.
He who craves to be loved turns himself into the woman, and he who thought he had no place for love finds himself emotionally drawn to the her.
In their claustrophobic prison cell, caught between the fictitious and the real, the two finally learn to discard fear, betrayal, disgust, and find love, the spirit of sacrifice, and the true beauty in humanity.
