Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

This film touches upon the theme of solitude and is a fantasy that leaves the viewer free to speculate. A woman drowns, unnoticed by three men sitting with their backs to the sea. Two of them are throwing dice; the third is drinking a glass of water.
