Two young women traverse Naples during the course of a day. Angela intends to leave the city of her birth, Paola plans to stay. Both are theater actresses, preparing a production of The Odyssey. Rehearsing and discussing their roles releases them into a parallel world where dream and desire intertwine, pushing the two friends to free themselves from society’s masks on and off the stage.
