While on holiday on the beautiful island of La Palma the close friends Mary and Sarah are testing the boundaries of love and friendship. Sarah grew up under difficult circumstances and is crumbling under the demands of her studies and is facing another upset in her young life. She is yearning for more intimacy in their relationship. Mary is overwhelmed by Sarah’s pain and longing. However, despite her initial sense of betrayal, Mary gradually allows herself to be drawn by Sarah into a sensual game of closeness and distance and experiences a new joie de vivre. One night on the dusty vulcano in the center of the island, Sarah breaks the fragile rules of their friendship. Mary leaves the island head over heels and flees into the arms of her slightly older boyfriend Ben, from whom she withholds what happened on the island. When half a year later Sarah reappears on Mary’s doorstep, the arduously held control over her life crumbles. Mary has to face her feelings and confront a decision that will turn her life upside down.
