“Ese” is a journalist and has to travel due to work. Meanwhile, “Ele” (her partner) stays at home with his plants and his work as a biologist as company. In her absence, they correspond with postcards and, between Ese’s enthusiasm for her travels and Ele’s nostalgia, their correspondence comes to embody their love, which is inevitably transformed by time and distance.
