"Just an idea – an idea for a story. Young girl, lives on shore of lake since childhood – like you. Loves the lake – like a seagull. Then one day a man turns up, sees her, and mindlessly destroys her – just like this seagull."

Konstantin dreams of writing the play that will forever change theatre. One hot, summer night he debuts his new work. In the audience are is his mother - a fading actress, her lover - a famous writer, and their friends and family. On stage is the woman Konstantin loves. Sparks of passion are ignited, and the soaring ambitions of this family and the people they love, are tested against the cold reality of life.
