A party of wealthy Italians land on an uninhabited island. A young woman quarrels with her lover, an architect, and disappears. Although no trace of her can be found, her girlfriend refuses to give up looking for her. With the architect, she searches for her all over Sicily. In the end, they forget her and become lovers. In the words of Antonioni: "I have been struck by the fragility of human relationships, by the moral, political and even physical instability of the modern world in which the physical becomes metaphysical and the frontier between science and science fiction hardly exists. Everyday, we live an adventure, ideological or sentimental."
