A woman and a man decide to die. They hate each other, but they agree that one of them should survive in order to leave a memorial to the other. Within one hour, each must convince the other to survive and to let the other die. So begins a strange battle where winning means death and losing means survival. A series of scenes reveals a dark shared past, set amidst the ruins of the Roman forum. Masks fall, and the bare, white bones of truth are revealed.
