Ann Sofi and Andreas are a couple of Swedish artists. They came to Romania as exchange students and have a workshop in an apartment downtown Bucharest. Ann Sofi sees art as a means of expressing her personal experiences and records her daily life obsessively with a video-camera. One summer afternoon, their neighbor, an amateur fisherman, offers them bag of live fish. The two are more eager to admire rather than slaughter the six creatures. After much ado, they chose to leave the fish in the freezer. A few hours later, to their surprise the fish are still alive. The two embark on a mission to release the fish in the nearest pond. However, this undertaking turns out to be more difficult then they would have expected and the obstacles they encounter bring to light their differing approaches to art, life and authorship.
