On a full moon night the 7th of April 2012 in a large apartment in the center of Istanbul, Blanca is playing piano after a welcoming toast by Edmundo. Some guests offer a strange ressemblance with film characters and seem to be trapped in a weird cycle of repetitions. Until 1am the first hour will repeat itself three times till the moment one of the exhausted guests will find a way to escape.. Blanca is asked to play piano again..
