According to Aristophanes, the human condition is characterized by the quest for our lost half (a part of us that was separated from us before we were born). We are therefore desperately seeking to satisfy our desire for completeness. This is exactly where addiction lies: between absence and desire. In order to better understand this yearning, the film delves into the life of an addiction medicine service.
