Film Description:
"In the calm light of a studio, a man relaxes, a woman draws. They are two strangers for whom the process of creation awakens intimacy that touches their very being. For the artist it is the need to go beyond appearances; for the model it is the refusal to look at the self. From scene to scene the film progresses, transforms, reconstructs the human interior landscape. A dramatic confrontation ensues."
