Deux mondes. Celui de l'extérieur, avec toutes les incertitudes et le brouhaha de la vie réelle. Celui de l'intérieur, un petit appartement tranquille où vivent trois jeunes adultes. Louis, qui lit beaucoup trop le journal, a des difficultés à contrôler ses angoisses. Charlotte, qui passe d'un gars à l'autre, ne s'aime tout simplement pas. Et Anna, qui sent qu'elle est remplie de pus, se déguise, car tout est plus simple quand elle est déguisée. Ah oui! Il y a aussi cette voix robotique qui nous parvient du téléphone pour nous annonce la fin du monde...
