Thomas, an agoraphobic in his thirties, hasn't gone out of his house for
eight years, and never meets anyone. He communicates with the outside world
by videophone and via computer, while a representative of his insurance
company runs nearly all the aspects of his daily life.
But one day, without telling him, his psychologist writes to a dating agency on his behalf. From
the candidates that appear on the screen, the young man is attracted to
Melanie, who seems very understanding. On the other hand, his insurance
agent advises him to call a prostitute service for the handicapped.
So Thomas gets to know Eva, and he slowly falls in love with her -- so much
so that he decides to leave his home to meet her.
