Sophie and Daneel, both in their early thirties, are a close and passionate
couple living in Paris. Sophie initiates a surprise journey to Bulgaria. Daneel
explicitly refuses to go, but Sophie insists and finally convinces him to
leave. When they arrive, Sophie discovers that Daneel was born there...
After a few hours spent on the crowded beaches, Daneel leads Sophie
to an almost abandoned island lost in the Black Sea. Once there, Daneel
discovers pregnancy tests in Sophie’s luggage. The heat and the strange
few inhabitants soon alter their own behaviors, and the island slowly
reveals hidden fears that question their love. To get through it all, they
have to take a leap into the unknown...
