When a young woman agrees with her faithless husband that it’s time for them to separate, she attempts to keep it a private matter. As she begins her new life, she hears that Christopher has gone missing in a remote, rugged region of southern Greece. Reluctantly agreeing to look for him, her search comes to a shocking breaking point, and she discovers that she understands less than she thought she did about her relationship with the man she used to love, and about love itself.
