A divorced, middle-aged filmmaker (Milian) searching for a leading lady to star in his next feature comes to realize that he has been subconsciously utilizing this task to instead find a new lover. Being a little over ambitious, he manages to become romantically involved with two women. After an initial attempt at juggling the relationships, the filmmaker is left alienated and confused when one of the women mysteriously disappears and the other becomes pregnant with another man's child. An atmospheric, erotic love story from acclaimed Italian director Michelangelo Antonioni (ZABRISKIE POINT, RED DESERT, BLOW-UP) who won the 35th Anniversary Prize at the 1982 Cannes Film Festival for this film.
