Although a tragic incident occurred eight years previously, it is still ever present for the married couple Hanna (Janna Striebeck) and Mads (Joachim Raaf) and has a profound impact on their daily lives. Hanna wants to start a new life, she wants to break away from her domestic standstill and flee the numbing depression that envelopes their marriage. If there is no other way, then without her husband Mads, although she is still in love with him. Mad doesn’t want to lose Hanna either and feels obliged to join her in Marbella where they confront the guilt, the accusations and the pain that has paralyzed them for so long. However, despite the freedom inherent in nature, the magic of the Mancha, the wildness of the Atlantic, the summer heat and the nightly crickets, none of this means anything to them because the grief overshadowing everything else cannot be overcome.
