Based on the work of artist René Magritte, the scene is represented in the universe of artistic painter, whose works marked an important period in art's History.

Five interpreters develop a narrative inserted in Magritte's own language, characters present in various art works that are sometimes the artist himself.

In the world of Magritte, the picture suggests a vision of "ambiguous puzzle" that is solved by the spirit. The objects here, appeal to the memories, memory, imagination, seeking to represent images that were recognized. The mystery appears in associations that are previously thought, which at first glance, may not be visible to the observer, here lays the "mystery," only to be discovered.
