Two ex-lovers who have lost track of one another meet again on a road trip to a small town where a gruesome crime was committed – an incident that left an indelible mark on their own lives. Layer after layer, the truth unravels and the couple revisits their unsettling past in a desperate attempt to heal their shared trauma. A fixating drama that wakes up our inner ghosts, urging us to imagine all that occurs on the sidelines.
