Ten years after their divorce the actors Sara and Steven are back together.

They have agreed to strive for the opposite of jealousy. They will not speak the truth but do not consider what they say as a lie. The love for the spoken language, a perfect combination of the gesture and the sentence structure is the highest form of beauty and only thanks to that love a relationship can heal ruptures and fractures without lasting damage. A noble cause, but will it work? The answer lies in the last two cues: Neither of you can be saved - And nor can you. The audience sits at both sides of the stage. There are slots in the white stage floor allowing the actors to compose the interior of a house with boards, as if they were moving in an architect’s drawing.
