A lecture hall in a university for arts and humanities. A professor of philology dispenses his poetry lecture to a group of mostly female students. With this educational project that calls upon the ancient muses to establish a poetic and amorous ethical code, the students gradually submit, dizzy and passionate, to this game embodied by an academy of the muses. A utopic project? Unrealistic? Controversial? One after the other are games of smoke and mirrors, games of power, seduction and desire, where everyone plays their role, where false hooks up with true, and where flirtatious banter and satire blend exquisitely under the auspices of Dante, Lancelot and Guinevere, and Orpheus and Eurydice.
Shadows and reflections navigate between the corridors of the University of Barcelona and the foothills of Vesuvius, creating this new space-time that becomes the film, where the fictional subject and reality observe each other. In this journey, the bodies, words and thoughts liberate themselves from one another, and the allegories break free. The women challenge the fetters to which poetry and literature often reduce them, launching into a mad pursuit of desire and beauty and the definition of pure thought, as they try to understand the truth about the utopia of Love.
