Marta is a professional swimming diver. An injury forces her to give up her career and return to her family home in Matera, a small medieval stone town surrounded by wild nature. There he faces the death of his artist father. In the village of return he meets another painter artist Sebastian, and his Japanese model who loves to portray in extreme poses. Inevitably, they attract the attention of Marta who is so struck by these works that she opens the doors of her house to the model and thus begins a symbiotic and sometimes disturbing relationship.
Three lives are at stake, the passion for her changes into obsession, reality turns into nonsense.
The arrival of his sister will upset the balance at home and bring old emotional traumas to the surface.
