Julian is a student in Toronto who has just come back from a trip to Barcelona where he has fallen in love with Sundra. Julian decides to send video letters. He records his everyday, sharing his life with the camera. Sundra intially forgets him but her interest is sparked when she receives the first tape. Julian's tapes become more and more introspective until he calls Sundra early one morning and hears a man's voice on the other end. Shattered, he confronts Sundra.
