A wife suspects that the fiction her husband is writing is really not fiction. She links this story to a woman who disappeared a few years ago. Could the story have originated in his own experience? If such were the case, it would mean her husband cheated on her. The husband confesses that once he was fascinated by the girl she is thinking of, but it's all past. The wife's mistrust grows and the husband tries to win back her trust. One night, out of frustration her husband burns his writings. But his wife thinks that it is only the curtain of words he has burnt. Then, what is real, what is fictional?
