The film is the story of 35-year-old Hera. Her home is her world and her world is magical. Her loneliness is full of things. Between everyday activities she is forgotten and entangled in microcosms that she creates. Her difficulty responding to the social dictates of gender, as well as an awkward encounter with a jeweler, leads her to buy a wedding ring. This purchase becomes the occasion for the creation of an imaginary relationship, short as a dream. As the relationship ends, Hera resumes her daily life.
