The Egocentricity of Desire is a film which tests the nature of human relationships. Confined in a flexible pneumatic construction, a man and a woman long to touch but cannot until they learn to move cooperatively. Each must imagine himself in the other’s place; each must grapple with his own desires and egotism. Only then will the apparatus permit them any degree of intimacy.
