Synopsis

Carlos is about 40 years old. He's attractive, but he looks sad, as if life isn't treating him very well. One day he goes into a very nice bookstore-bar, and he asks for a brandy. His first brandy. Irene is about 30. As soon as she sees Carlos come into the bookstore-bar, she decides that she wants to «play with him», without knowing him, without ever having seen him before.

She just wants to improvise, without any hurry or obligations. Both need something to help them deal with their recent love failures. And so, without telling each other their names or exchanging phone numbers, Carlos and Irene start dating in the same bookstore where they met for the first time. Irene is a born dreamer, Carlos has forgotten how to dream, but both enjoy their little game, which connects them in a way they could have never imagined.
