A unique way of life, that repeats itself every day, has slowly transformed Imre and Piroska in some museum exhibits. In a quiet and isolated world, we meet a couple whose existence begins to depend on the interaction with a different world and the absurdity within. Yet their life stands still, as in a museum diorama, from which they are trying to break free.
