Gloria is a young woman with depression. She is getting older than her years and feels that her life is hopeless because she has been cheated and betrayed many times in the past. After a suicide attempt, he recovers and gets the idea from a film magazine to go to Hollywood to become an actress. Robert is a desperate Hollywood citizen who tries to become a director without doubting that he will succeed.

The exhausting dance reflects Gloria's already weakened spirit and she tells Robert that she would die better, that her life is hopeless - she behaves cruelly and bitter all the time, introducing herself to people around her and trying to convince him, shoot them and throw them out of misery.
