In this experimental film, a young woman sits at a coffee table. She has arrived from far away to visit the city of Sabbioneta, the ideal city of Vespasiano Gonzaga’s Italian Renaissance. She feels that someone she cannot see is watching her. Uncomfortable with that feeling, she decides to move away from the cafe. Then she walks across the public square and enters the historic Ducal Palace. As she walks, she tightly grasps a book by Borges in her hand and, in a strange sense of deja-vu, the man who is chasing her fails to catch up with her.
