In a colorful setting, where thoughts and ideas aren’t necessarily black or white, a situation of non-communication is enacted. Two men and a woman are throwing their most inner thoughts at each other, but finding little solace in the others’ words. Communication can sometimes be unidirectional, even though a dialogue is taking place, and where certainty can be a comfort, perhaps skepticism and doubt should be the default.
