Marina is a fragile and insecure young woman struggling to be the perfect mother. Hoping a change of scenery will improve her baby’s sleeping habits, she decides to spend the summer vacation in the mountainside. Marina rents an apartment from Manfred, a gruff mountain guide who lives in an old house. He is distrustful of women. Manfred and Marina keep their distance until a harrowing envent forces them together. Faced with an undeniable and growing attraction, they shy away from their desire. Fifteen years later, Marina returns to the mountain to find Manfred.
