Letters to old friends. An invitation. A film project. Awad, a director, is kidnapped by militia, kept prisoner and tortured. Hermann, a stage designer, is haunted by nightmares. Sandu, a gardener, spent his childhood in youth homes. For the protagonists, a garden becomes a stage and a childhood paradise, a nightmare, prison, and theater of war. A nocturnal, poetic stream of consciousness in brilliant black-and-white.
