Extreme closeness and miles of distance. Intimate contact and ever-present loneliness.
Every weekend the four protagonists of 1000 MILES TILL THE NEXT EMBRACE fly from one European city to the next to find this one perfect embrace that will give them a moment of bliss and an instant of infinite happiness. It means everything to them: sincere communication, erotic experience, switching off their brains and losing themselves fully. But why is all this easier to create with strangers from all over the world - bound by little time and in a tight structure - than in their own surroundings at home? And what happens when the tango-WE comes to an end?
