Sophia is a highly acclaimed opera singer faced with a terminal illness. Oscar, her companion and orchestra conductor, is determined to distance her from this reality and tries to get her to concentrate all her energy on the premiere of a new opera which should bring them international fame. The appearance of Pulcinella and of a mysterious street puppet theatre with traditional characters, with their histrionics, energy and passion for life, mesmerizes Sophia. But Oscar finds all this infantile. The puppets are a magical projection of Sophia’s unconscious. In them she materializes her desire for life faced with the reality of her own death. Oscar, on seeing that Sophia is fully absorbed in this unreal and absurd world, becomes desperate and conceives a deep jealousy of the puppeteer. But who is the puppeteer? Slowly in the street theatre the puppet of death makes an appearance…
