Two men in a Frisian pasture use arm gestures and sounds to set a herd of shiny black Frisian horses in motion. In the grass, the couple dance the story of their relationship: the meeting, circling around each other, getting entangled, balancing and subsequently rejection. Meanwhile, against the background of a typically Dutch sky, the horses have their own choreography, in which they run, jump and dance synchronously, as in a dance.
