1F / 1M / 1 more actor

A dog narrates the odd behaviour between a man and woman who chain themselves to one another whilst barely being able to stand each other. At the very moment that they meet, the dog runs up and stays with them because he – like them -- has nothing to lose and he – like them -- is looking for protection. After a short period of devotion, human nature forces its way to the surface: love becomes possessiveness, closeness is swapped for mistrust and alienation. However, a break-up is out of the question. The couple’s energy-zapping everyday routine binds them together like a taut leash. This all seems very natural to the dog: “We dogs and human beings are alike in many ways, we deal with catastrophes similarly: we accept them.”
