A drama with thriller elements about strong love on the verge of obsession.

Forgetting about all the affairs (and about his current fiancée), Matthew tries to find his ex-girlfriend and becomes part of a confusing story. For two hours, the viewer worries about a young man with kind eyes. The writers postponed the denouement of the story until the last minutes.
