Something has ended: two women’s friendship, an old love, a childhood in the suburbs, a trip to the seaside, an entire life. Something has shifted imperceptibly, everything goes on and nothing is as it was. – Zsuzsa Bánk tells stories about people who simply close the door behind them one day. About Larry, the cocaine-addicted three-ton man who writes poetry. About Lydia, carried off by the wind. About Lisa, who returns for a single afternoon to the tiny mountain village in Italy which her mother once abandoned – in the hottest part of the summer.
