A worker, Leon, is deeply in love with Anna. (None of them are really young). During night time Leon will enter an open window and merely be sitting and looking at the sleeping Anna. He may also paint her toenails with nail polish. - Since he may also in daytime use different ways of being secretly near her, he is near in the barn, when another man binds her and rapes her. But here Leon makes a great mistake. He leaves the barn immediately after the rapist - almost as if they were together. Leon is the only one Anna could recognize. In the court he gives primitive answers. Why did he do it? "Love." He gets a 5-year prison sentence. - In a pause, maybe in an appellate court, Anna says to Leon, that she does not believe that he did it. Written by

a man. a woman. a hospital. four nights in a room watching object of love. two windows. a cat. and the gray atmosphere. few words.a ring. and a fake accusation. different fact of a small world. nothing else. and precision of a story as delicate work of a remarkable director. a film about solitude, desire and sin. sad and common. slice of stone in the light of hot ash. not a lesson, not an event. only testimony about a strange search of happiness. part of every existence, this story is almost a mirror.or only postcard from yourself deep places. cruel, touching and empty of colors, it is shadow of an usual tragedy with many labels.story of love, it is reflection of hate. nothing else.
