Marianna’s life is steady. She’s independent, has a good job and lives in a beautiful house. Her limited social needs are entirely satisfied by one close and much younger friend, Hela. It seems that nothing can take down the wall Marianna build around herself. But one day, she answers an unexpected phone call from someone who penetrates her reality uninvited. Marianna starts to realise that there’s no return to the well-organised life she’s built over the years. To regain peace, she will have to face her troubled past.
