In the last hours of 2050, while holding hands, a couple renews the promise to stay together until after the end of the world. One question remains: is the apocalyptic pink cloud responsible for bringing back a series of memories, or are they the ones who, in remembering the life they shared, form a cloud capable of coloring the gray world? In this film, the world’s first romantic waves to the last ones, leaving behind a lesson for those to come. Here, multiple temporalities and aesthetic references dream of a diverse life to come.
