It is the beginning of the 20th century and Ciril, who is an art historian, and his friend Fritz are touring northern Italy. Venice, Milano, Lago di Garda and Florence see the lives of Ciril and Franc and the two ladies accompanying them entwine and separate. Like muses, the two women give the men inspiration for their intellectualised and complicated lives, and at the same time, force them to find newer and deeper meaning. Will Fritz find the ultimate answers he seeks in Renaissance art and will Ciril be changed forever by his relationship with a woman? The film is in essence one of the few Slovene fin de siecle novels, S poti (Of a Journey), decanted into Klopčič's poetry of beautiful Italian landscape peysages, inlaid with complex characters and inserts that could well belong to famous literary works.
