    • Synopsis
    • Two screenwriters /She and He/ are inventing the script for “the simple story about love” while travelling by a train. At the beginning of their story the heroes work in the rehearsal room with the conventional open-air stage design and interiors to later change them into real train. So there is a lost woman /Martha/, a self-confident man /Aleks/ and their accidental meeting in which unexpectedly interferes the director /Patrick/. Now we are on a train on the film set. The story turns 180 degrees , the characters gain new identity. Martha is an acknowledged actress and Patrick’s partner, Aleks is going to make his film debut. Scene by scene we see the emerging passion between Martha and Aleks, but we do not know whether it is “real” or “film”. These to sets intertwine with each other and complement one another. This specific construction is thorn by retrospectives and screenwriters-demiurges interference. They invent the drama triangle and put their heroes /and themselves as well/ in the world of betrayal, lies, partings and passion. This is a film about love and about telling about love. This is a film where the characters are uncertain and dream about real feelings until the surprising finale when they all find their destiny and identity.
