In an ordinary world, where many are content to live lives according to fleeting ideals, we meet Zak and Mia, a typical couple of modern-day aesthetes. Concerned only with their own appearances and flourishing in a life of superficiality they visit an art gallery where Zak hopes to buy something worth having. After settling on one particular work of art labelled "priceless", Zak and Mia are joined by artist Vincent. After insisting the art is not for sale, yet not fully explaining why, Vincent convinces Zak to look for the creation's hidden code for by doing so, Zak may discover himself. After Vincent leaves the couple alone Zak does discover the true meaning of the work to his delight, the "gentleness, harmony and balance". Although Mia also cracks the code, she is met in contrast by darkness and imbalance, suffering deliberation of her own unhealthy soul.
