Déjà Vu is the story of a LAT (Living Apart Together) couple of our time: being in love, their dreams and reality are always connected in some way but when they have the chance to share the same apartment, things start changing. They really don't know the reason of such a crisis: their thoughts don't meet up anymore until the end, when it's too late.
