The young doctor Fabian spontaneously travels to Lisbon to win back his ex-girlfriend Doro, who works there as an architect. He wants to show her that he has learned from his mistakes and has overcome his jealousy. But Fabian feels threatened by Doro’s close friendship with her charismatic colleague Francisco and soon relapses into old habits. Afraid of being injured again by Fabian, Doro withdraws from him. On a trip to the Atlantic coast, the tense mood, dominated by mistrust and accusations, turns into a threat. When Fabian realizes that he has to let go to defeat his fears, he makes a discovery that drags him into a devastating nightmare.
