Love is something that has never changed its essence throughout history. Of course, there are countless kinds of love, each specific in its own way, but present-day people cannot find it because they don’t look ahead. The world is today a virtual place and people fall in love with what they see on the screens, since the virtual world has replaced reality. It is impossible to see if you don’t look, but even when you look, you will have trouble seeing if your mind is somewhere else. A man and a woman, two protagonists of this story, meet in this cold and colourless world and their sporadic encounters soon change into a colourful dance.
