The usual story: Boy meets girl. - Really?
From the initial colourful mating dances and courtship displays, where the partners-to-be offer themselves under the best angle (Beautiful Numbers), over seduction scenes and sexual approaches (Besotted in Love) we can follow boy and girl to the actual attempt of matching (Differenzen).
The question if the attempt was successful remains open, but we can see boy and girl trying to rebuild their identity without the mirror of the other, recalling scenes of the relationship and trying to make sense of their actions (Last verses).
