The curtain of salmon colored roses and heavy gold fringing which covers the stage is pulled back to reveal a Pina Bausch spectacle, Café Müller. Among the spectators, two men are sitting together by chance. They don’t know each other. They are Benigno (a young nurse) and Marco (a writer in his early forties). The piece is so moving that Marco starts to cry. Benigno can see a gleam of luck in the other’s tears... He’d like to tell him that he too is moved by the spectacle but he doesn’t dare.

Months later, the two men meet again in a private clinic where Benigno works. Lydia, Marco’s girlfriend and a bullfighter by profession, has been gored and is in a coma. It so happens that Benigno is looking after another woman in a coma, Alicia, a young ballet student.

During this period of suspended time between the walls of the clinic, the lives of the four characters will flow in all directions, past, present and future, dragging all of them towards an unsuspected destiny.
