This is the life of naïve filmmaker Leon at the time when he’s between a film shooting and his next project –a sort of limbo with an endless postponing of things, some low-key frustration, love quarrels, conversations, coffees, drunkenness, classes, concerts, and walks… But all those things are in a waiting tone, with the particular tempo days usually have when you simply let them pass and the important things are yet to come.
