Blending an absurd reality with dream, the film begins when the new Songstress emerges from the sea. Dripping wet, carrying an empty suitcase with no recollection of where she has come from. The transition into the small seaside community of women proves mentally disturbing. Finally, the Songstress endures the uncertainty and assumes her role alongside an organ grinder in an eternal dream.
