"What's involved in love?-power, control-is that what we're talking about?"

This film is about love-relations between men and women, conversations in the air. Men are heard in voice-over speaking a love-talk which is personal, though anonymous, or singular. Another voice-over reads parables, which present a context for the possibility of love or spirit in the world at large. The film ends optimistically: a smile slowly spreads on a man's face; women addressing men in their own voices.

"He stored the Divine Light in a vessel, but the vessel, unable to contain the Holy Radiance, burst, and its shards, permeated with sparks of the Divine, scattered through the Universe." - Adele Wiseman
