A couple at their country home. The woman is surly; the man, patient. She goes shopping at a faraway shopping centre. On the way, and it is not the first time, a man asks her for help. She confronts him. They go to a self-service where a woman friend of the stranger waits. Conversation between the women. There is anguish in the atmosphere. Protagonism of memories. Exasperation. Perhaps we cannot access a coherent explanation of what is happening, if anything important is happening. A sensation of desire, focusing on all four characters in the situation, takes on relief around the married woman. And the anguish, and the fear.
