Synopsis

In search of an adventure, Christina, a woman in her forties, ends up with René and Sandra, a young couple living in apparent harmony.
Pale afternoon light shines through the neatly arranged curtains onto the three-piece suite. Topics which are a strain to find grind to a halt after a few sentences and end in oppressive silence which is only interfused by the gentle pumping of the aquarium. Gradually, however, it becomes evident why these three people are sitting together.
