N is a young sub-Saharan man who crosses the desert in order to reach North Africa and be smuggled into Europe. After being a victim to a hold-up, he finds himself alone in Tunisia. He therefore decides to cross the sea all by himself towards a European country.

He steals a small boat and embarks on his crossing journey. However, the boat breaks down in the middle of the sea, and N goes henceforth through a special and unique journey. He travels to different, infinite spaces, makes ephemeral yet intense encounters, and meets an altered image of himself.
