"...we yearned to share our lives,
but resigned ourselves to solitude."
A man and a woman who frequent the same places but never meet each other. They just cherish their dreams of love, in solitude. But one day, by chance… they discover that some dreams come true.
Illustrations and words made of huge silence, of huge solitude, but with a kernel of noisy, daily life, covering anything else.
Everything but the night, within the four walls of home, or in our deep thoughts.
And like in a dream, they convey the sense of the image of beauty, our object of desire.
