A silent city, mysteriously devoid of inhabitants, is crossed by a man who has come from far. The anonymised architecture that composes the urban landscape guides the person into an inaccessible space, the city cemetery, making him reflect on his own identity. The film was born from the metaphysical suggestion of some architectural works by Aldo Rossi, in particular the modern extension of the San Cataldo Cemetery in Modena.
