On the same day, two adolescents free themselves from a life that would have left them feeling trapped. They chance upon each other two years later, in a village far too discreet to be found on any map. In the heart of a bountiful yet savage wilderness, they fall in love, far from the roar of the twentieth century. That is until life takes an unpleasant turn as it so often does.
