An elderly couple is trying to learn the English Waltz with the help of an instruction video. While they are struggling with the dance, they never seem to gain any progress. In almost every scene the same question arises: "should we turn left or turn right?"
Sometimes the voice-overs of the couple explain the history of the English Waltz and it's technical structure. The film is a succession of scenes of the couple's dance, combined with scenes of the couple talking about the dance and their confusion and experiences around this dance. At the same time the video is a portrait of the dynamics between two people that are being merried for a long time.
