A solitary inhabitant of an extraordinary room situated in the space between dream and reality keeps waiting, dreaming and recalling. The world which surrounds him is dwarfish, though densely populated. Sometimes he envies the characters who live there. However, in a normal room he would not be able to lead a happy life. Dreaming about love, he does not notice the one who cares about him, organizes his life and at times, becomes his partner – presumably not only in a dream. Actually, she could be one, if only he were able to perceive her…
Is he dreaming in a dream? Are we, the audience, a part of his dream? Shall we still exist when he stops dreaming?
