A dream that becomes a nightmare, a nightmare that becomes reality. A dreamlike and veiled
trasposition from a phrase taken from a play about the life of Eleonora Duse, one of those phrases
that transcends time and is capable of being immortal. The short film intends to subtly and
elegantly denounce the cultural void that grips society before and after the coronavirus and it
does so through an artist that had reaction to a scary nightmare. His frantic attempt to react leads
him to discover an even more cruel reality.

His search for God and art is soaked by a lonely tear that falls in the desert that surrounds him.
