A screenwriter in a creative block abandons his girlfriend’s dog in a field far away so that he doesn’t have to take care of it. Soon repenting, he goes back to the place where he left it but the dog is no longer there. Nearby is a convenience store in a gas station. A parallel reality awaits him. Meeting a married woman is going to set his creativity free again. A story of the imagination presented in a very original and unexpected form.
