Synopsis

Fifteen years after a psychotic crisis on the China Sea has changed his life, Alex, a sophisticated and sensitive schizophrenic, is at a crossroads. Because of his grandmother's insistence, who wishes to die peacefully, he finally agrees to look for a lover.
His encounter with a psychotic young woman gives birth to an incandescent and passionate relationship that gradually crosses her emotional boundaries. As the troubled waters of the Chinese Sea come back in him, he starts to isolate himself more and more, at the risk of being sucked into the unfathomable abysses of paranoia. An intimate, disturbing and wonderful odyssey.
