Brief Synopsis:
A man is bored watching the opera. He falls asleep. His wife looks at him with outrage. He sees a girl in the audience, also bored next to her partner. In her he sees a soul mate, and longs to draw attention. The girl walks out, he goes after her. Due to unfortunate circumstances, his attempt to make contact with the girl grows into a comic chase through the dark corridors of the theater, accompanied by monstrous sounds of the opera. During their cat-mouse situation through the maze of lights and shadows, their partners find a far easier way to communicate.
