Benedito Senna is blind. He moved from the Brazilian city of Belém to France, where he fell in love with and married Jean Luc, who is somewhat his eyes and a devoted reader of his poems. In Paris, he meets another Benedito, a film director who is also Brazilian and gay. Their friendship begins with an exchange of videos and voicemails, and their passion for images reunite them years later to make a movie. As they set out to shoot, however, they realize things are no longer the same and differences arise.
