A woman has a strange encounter on her way to work: She finds herself gazing into a wild pair of eyes, and it seems that her entire life hitherto has been a joke. She can’t forget that instant and becomes a hunter who indeed finally manages to lock a wild wolf in her high-rise apartment. Now she herself begins to assume a new identity, one that breaks with all the fetters of bourgeois life. Strangely, this pleases the people around her, particularly her boss… It seems they all share her secret yearning.
