A Piece For Two Hands

“I remember the first time I kissed someone whose lips were as big as mine. The feeling was very intense, like meeting someone who had read all my favorite books”, a person from the film recalls. The film unfolds through 23 real or fictional memory fragments told by a man and woman in conversation with each other and with themselves.
