A brilliant architect seeks spiritual and artistic renewal during a life changing voyage in Italy to study the great 17th century architect Francesco Borromini. Bathed in Italian light and often breathtakingly beautiful in its sweeping panoramic shots and disembodied architectural observations, the film makes a passionate plea not only for the preservation of history but for the rekindling of human affection and interaction in a world grown cold.
