This is an experimental art film based on a short poem about the meaning of beauty and the tension between the beautiful and the real. During a stay on an olive farm in Turkey, the filmmaker stumbled upon a book of poems by Fernando Pessoa in the attic of the farmhouse.

It suggests a simple view of the world as it is, free of sentiment, theories, and contradictions.
