Sonia comes from Ljubljana and works as a waitress in a hotel. Guido is a former policeman and works as a security guard in a villa outside the city. They meet at a speed date event. He is a regular customer. For her, it is the first time and it shows. There are few words, but an instinctive attraction. In a few days, they get to know each other, and learn to open up their hearts and to disclose their wounds. They are on the brink of falling in love… when suddenly Guido dies, during a robbery at the villa where he works. Sonia is left alone to deal with a grief she cannot come to terms with, and for which some even seem to hold her responsible. As Sonia’s past re-surfaces with all its skeletons, the reality around her starts to tremble to the point of collapsing. Everything begins to change, all certainties crumble and nobody is the same any longer. Not even Sonia. But who is she really? Above all, is the man she continues to see – beyond all plausible logic – Guido, or is she out of her mind? And what will she do when she is given another chance? The answers arrive only at the end, in a continuous twist and turn of events.
