Short film performed by a graduation class at the drama school in Maastricht. Loving couples come and go continuously in a surrealistic room designed by Jan Roelf and Ben van Os. Romances blossom and wilt again in a flash. As soon as a lover disappears from sight, another takes his or her place, as in an amorous ballet. The characters yearning for passion keep making the same mistakes. In their fear of missing out, they leave a trail of unrequited loves behind. Then the pattern is unexpectedly broken.
