In a decrepit three-room house two lovers, played by the filmmakers, fall out of each other's graces and turn bitter enemies without exchanging words. In the theatrical dream world of their sleep, they endeavor to harm each other though a series of childish games, which inevitably go too far. Growing increasingly distrustful of one another, these somnambulists become finely skilled at the unmaking of love.
