This film includes four vignettes exploring heartache. The first involves two sisters (Corsale and Agosti) going out for a New Year's Eve celebration. They are picked up by a carload of boys, who subsequently rape one of the girls. Despite the horror of this act, the victim comes to fall

in love with one of her attackers. In the second tale, two young men (Negri and Errera) spend a weekend at a country estate owned by Negri's wealthy father. They have been good friends for a long time and finally consummate their relationship. In the next story, a woman leaves her lover, and he

grows despondent. He glimpses the image of a Bengal tiger on television and quickly becomes fascinated with the jungle cat. He takes to watching the animal at a local zoo and refuses to see his former love when she decides to return. In the final episode, Manzone plays a derelict who lives in an

abandoned automobile. He dispenses sage philosophy to anyone who listens and is one day visited by Ranucci. She is the doorkeeper for the building Manzone's "home" is parked near, and she finds herself inexplicably attracted to this vagrant. Filmed over the course of three years, director Agosti

has stated he is more interested in the visual elements of cinema rather than telling a story. But in concentrating exclusively on this aspect, his work is merely a series of wonderfully arranged shots that ultimately say nothing.
