Brief synopsis of the project: 

Barbara and Guille are in love and she just wants to have a child with him. But an accident changes his personality and she discovers that she feels no desire for this dimwit stranger. After a year mourning the death of love she gets involved with Nils, a man more plain than old Guille, who offers her a life like the one she planned, minus real passion. She takes on this new life but the memory of lost love still harrows her. She realizes that sometimes the best father is not the best husband.
