The protagonists of these stories are not heroes, and they are not facing life or death situations. They are completely normal folk. A woman who can’t sleep and goes to the living room to listen to the buzzing of the TV. A father who blows out the candles in front of his son. A young woman who writes a love story to a girl she will never meet. A man and a woman who say goodbye on a corner… These characters do not know each other but similar things happen to all of them: life, with its trivial but big questions. They must choose between the lives they have and the lives they imagine.
