The Children of Edgar and Nina
Felix and Luc are wandering through different paths with different kinds of loneliness. When those paths cross, a whirlwind of experiences leave them spent and wondering what it all was for. Venus, a woman and magical connection to them both, takes us back to beginning with the power of music and poetry to explore their intimacy and what it truly means to be vulnerable.
