Synopsis

A young man is roaming through the city of Guanajuato accompanied by his friend. He is happy to be away from the hospital, which is a sad and cold place. The city is his home and brings back lost memories and emotions. Meanwhile, thousands of miles away in Belgrade, four women weave their own threads into the story. As one of them dressed as Frida Kahlo disappears into the spotlight of the theatre stage, she’s accompanied by the Yugoslavian version of Paloma Negra, reminding us that only love is eternal in this fleeting world.
