Simple piano music by Frederico Mompou, the scraping sound of a knife in tiles and the fluttering of paper in the wind are the only sounds in this black-and-white charcoal animation. Based on a scene from Michelangelo Antonioni's Il Deserto Rosso. A man and a woman find each other on a last piece of terra firma, where a newspaper that blows past brings a message of love.
