Desde su terraza, Samuel observa el trajín cotidiano como quien está de vuelta sin haber llegado a nada. Él es una persona que no se compromete con nada ni con nadie. Una madrugada, alguien anuncia por teléfono que Clara ha muerto en un accidente. Aunque Samuel no conoce ninguna Clara, decide asistir el funeral, empujado por una mezcla de curiosidad y aburrimiento. Fascinado por la posibilidad de suplantar a la persona con la que lo confunden, Samuel se inventa una relación con Clara para Carina, la hermana de ésta, y entra en un juego del que va perdiendo el control; al poco tiempo no tiene nada claro si el amor sue está inventando lo va a salvar o a acabar de hundirlo.
From his terrace, Samuel observes the hectic everyday life like someone who is on his way back from having achieved nothing. He is a person who is not committed to anything or anyone. Early one morning, he receives a phone call informing him that Clara has died in an accident. Although Samuel doesn't know anyone named Clara, he decides to attend the funeral, driven by a mixture of curiosity and boredom. Fascinated by the possibility of impersonating the person they must have intended to notify, Samuel makes up a relationship with Clara for Carina, Clara's sister, and thus enters a game that is quickly out of his control. Soon, he is not clear whether the love he made up will end up saving him or sinking him.
