Andrea is a 50-year-old architect who lost his wife Sofia and becomes fixated with Hikma, the lover of a younger acquaintance. He meets Hikma through Rosanna, a young anesthesiologist at the local hospital and her husband Riccardo, an aspiring writer. Months later, when Andrea discovers that Riccardo has left Rosanna and that Hikma is pregnant with Riccardo’s child, he offers to let them stay with him in his villa. The young Hikma increasingly reminds Andrea of Sofia, who passed away under mysterious circumstances four years earlier.
