Three stories about passion. And one about death.
Eva is in her late thirties and has her whole life, from her daily work routine as a nurse to her role as wife and mother, perfectly under control. Then one day she finds Tomasz, doctor and casual out-of-town acquaintance from the past, waiting for her as she gets off her shift.
A few passion-filled nights later Tomasz is on his way back to the airport. He takes home with him a few photographs of Eva in compromising positions - frozen moments of intense intimacy in the wake of which nothing will ever be the same.
Sonja, the grocery store checkout girl, is frantically jealous of her husband Marco. And she has every reason to be. A baby, she thinks, could change everything. But can you exact love with a lie?
It's been a while since Nicole divorced the real estate agent Alex, and there's no longer any room for him in her new life as a single mother. His way of dealing with his powerlessness to change the situation follows the same pattern as ever: first ignorance and arrogance, and then hate and violence.
Lives that intersect at critical moments, skillfully woven into a film about the obsessions of love, the search for closeness, and the hope for happiness. About fear, loneliness, and courage.
In the constellation of Scorpius, 500 light years away, the variable double star Antares shines bright and red in the sky. Its unique luminosity is at the same time its demise. In the foreseeable future it will explode as a supernova.
