A young woman remembers a seemingly trivial argument she had with her ex-husband while she was pregnant. Using elements of psychodrama, she enters the role of herself in the past attempting to tackle the suppressed emotions caused by his abuse. When she switches into the role of her then husband, she begins to realize the possible reasons for his aggressive behaviour.
