Dino and Anna love each other intensely, but their relationship is not conventional: between them there has never been sexual intercourse. Dino always escaped from this, as if inside him there were a sharp and painful division between sex and love. Dino’s discomfort is expressed by compulsive sex with prostitutes. His goes in search of Anna's ex-boyfriends to understand their relationships with her, asking them to return with her. Dino's pain makes Anna feel deeply loved, unique. Anna is unable to find a solution: she is not able and cannot resolve this tormented relationship…
