Francesca, who had quit the family business to live in Paris with her husband, reluctantly agrees and begins working with her father’s most trusted partner, the charming Massimo (Fabrizio Gifuni). As construction on the villa progresses, an attraction between the two also begins to build. When an unexpected tragedy strikes, Francesca and Massimo finally face the feelings they have had for each other all along.
