Diorama is a nightmarish trip through a couple's memories and projections at the end of their long on/off relationship. The film depicts the the couple's quest for the one true love, which, however, remains unfulfilled.
A sparse desert landscape provides the surreal setting where Kolja and Rocio confront each other with memories of the darkest and manic moments of their time together. For them, the desert is not only a travel destination they never made it to but also represents a place of longing and hope. For an instant, a change of perspective and a chance to reconnect seems possible.
However, the past has a firm grip on them and will not let go. Fond memories of the crazy-romantic beginning of their relationship are overcome by desires and anxieties. The cautious quest for new beginning ends as disaster - again. During their encounter in the unreal desert, their thoughts are haunted more and more by images from the past.
