- Synopsis / Plot
- An archaeologist and a weapons designer, who knew each other in a previous life as a filmmaker and a psychoanalyst, meet at an excavation site in the Negev desert and begin a conversation about love and war, which they continue in the Israeli city of Be’er Sheva. A series of encounters with alternating actors in different roles ensues, which leads the viewer through the cities of Athens, Berlin, Hong Kong and São Paulo. Among those appearing are: an old artist who meets his younger self; a mother who lives with her two grown-up sons, a priest and a policeman; a Chinese and a Japanese woman; a curator and a cosmologist. The protagonists’ dialogues revolve around social taboos that have become obsolete, generational conflicts, war guilt and cosmologies. The architecture of these five cities serves as a third interlocutor in the protagonists’ conversations and completes their philosophical and metaphysical journeys.
