A woman travels alone, through a destroyed and abandoned city. She wants to pass the Forbidden Zone and get to the sea… Deceptive traps lurk everywhere. The Morning Patrol is guarding and they are on her trail.
She is approached by one of the few survivors. Having a fractured memory in common, they become close to one another. Together, they try to recall the past and make some sense out of this catastrophe. A story of love in an unbearable world, surrounded by violence and death… What point can it have?
