A group of international actors comes together in the set of a conference room, to read and rehearse an unnamed three act drama on an undefined revolutionary situation. In the process of the rehearsel in which the actors imagine and interpretate their characters and their context, the borders be- tween fiction, projections and biographical backgrounds become more and more blurry.
Only commented from afar by a mysterious narrator, the actors discuss, improvise and negotiate between language and the necessity for action. But to what extent can action be thought and performed beyond the inherited dramaturgical patterns that come to play on stage?
