A bonfire burns on a Cornish beach in the middle of the night. Nearby, a young woman awaits for morning, and for the estate agent to arrive with the keys to her new life in the peaceful fishing village. She carried with her no trace of her previous life or the past she has left behind. Quickly she becomes an object of fascination among the locals; one in particular finds that he is falling in love with her. But can anyone really have a new life? What happened to this woman's old life? And what price did she pay to escape it?
