Taciturn thirtysomething Anna lives in a small flat with her dog Manu, who means everything to her. After a distressing incident which disrupts her carefully guarded, secluded life, the solitary woman attaches herself to Sofia and her family, a happily married woman and mother of two children. Anna's attempts to communicate her pain and loneliness gradually grow into the obsession of an individual persistently demanding love and acceptance.
