Kamilla (40) lives with her mother Gudrun (72) in a remote house in Italy, surrounded only by vineyards and forest. She takes care of the disabled Gudrun and looks after the land and the farm. There is a tense relationship between mother and daughter, a love-hate relationship that ties them together. When the mysterious stranger Rocco (35) appears, Kamilla hides him from the police – against Gudrun’s will. Kamilla and Rocco start a passionate affair. The smoldering quarrel between mother and daughter ignites.
