Nighttime. A middle-aged woman is walking fast. A young man follows her. The woman notices it, panics, and speeds up her pace. She is about to cross a street when a car speeds up. Her pursuer leaps, overtakes her, and plants himself in front of the vehicle, thus saving the woman from a fatal accident. But that's not all. Images play with the spectator; they mislead and surprise him until they lead him to an unimaginable ending.
