One morning Vincent realizes that Cléa is no longer sexually attracted to him. As a result he begins a sleepwalking quest made up of strange encounters. All the people he meets suffer in different ways from a gnawing feeling of incapacity, brought on by what eludes them. Through those confrontations, Vincent is going to get aware of the emptiness that took hold.
