Ray and Ramona are a young couple. They hate the injustice of the social context they are part of. Each from their own niche, Ramona as a musician, Ray as an activist, tries to fight for a more just world. Devoted to self-sabotage, Ray fails in his rebellion and drags Ramona into a downward spiral that culminates in an act of poetic terrorism. This film has screened around the world, premiering at the Venice Film Festival.
