A participant leaves his poetry class overwhelmed. From that moment on, an inextricable series of events involving several protagonists begins. Some couples form, while others claim "It doesn't work!" We hear tunes vaguely reminiscent of light-hearted French songs, but the question the work poses is this one: When can we really be sure we desire someone?

Ce vidéo s'ouvre en pleine classe de poésie. Un des auditeurs en sort ému. Aussitôt commence ce qui sera un inextricable enchaînement d'histoires entremêlées entre plusieurs protagonistes. Des couples se forment, d'autres rétorquent que "Ça marche pas!" sur des airs rappelant vaguement la chansonnette française. En fait, la grande question posée est: Quand est-on vraiment sûr de désirer quelqu'un?
