As a meditation on the secret joy of perception and its fragility, the subject is blindness, or perhaps more accurately, the absence of vision and the persistence of memory. A man receives his medical prognosis. A tumor has atrophied, impairing his sight. He is an actor and he speaks in metaphors of light, shadows and darkness, about consciousness and internal awareness. There is also a woman who speaks of her blindness as a break with everything, a process of seeing from within to within, the memory of a full moon, and discovering the light of others. And a Swiss landscape painter, with his easel before him, contemplates an overpowering vista.
