A unique way of life that repeats itself every day, 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 absurd within. Yet, their life stands still, like in a museum diorama,  from which they are trying to break through.
