Synopsis

First episode: A typical modern and isolated building, situated in the periphery of the city. It's in this desert landscape where Stefania, a pleasant and vital woman, lives, by herself since her husband left her for another woman. Stefania works at home, she copies television screenplays and smiles at the banality of the familiar events described: - One day I will write a story myself - she tells the clients she works for. Second episode: A clochard, Bernard is warming up himself with the fire under a Seine bridge. The man has a serene and detached aspect, muffled in a coat which maintains his dignity. It is an uncertain hour that precedes the dawn, while the Seine seems to wake up from the long night sleep. Suddenly something interrupts Bernard's solitude: a woman walks slowly down the steps which go from the shore to the river, until she throws herself in the water which drags her away. Third episode: Avril,12, is setting a few chairs in front of the caravan of the little CIRQUE ETOILE. Night comes down on the open place nearby the lake. Two or three bulbs illuminate the space with chairs. The audience is composed of only a few people. While Avril d s her number, Stella tries to make sure that her partner David, completely drunk, is able to perform his role as Diabolik, the fire eater. Diabolik, who finally appears, is received with euphoria. He wears a black suite with fire flames painted all over and a bonnet with horns. David drinks some alcohol, then brings the fire to his face and blows out of his mouth a big flame, until it comes out so strongly that it seems to burn him. David falls down with an inhuman scream. At the hospital he gives little signs of life, the situation is dangerous but Stella d sn't give up.
