On a quiet mountain road near Barcelona, a woman steps out in front of a car. When the driver, a well-known artist, stops to come to her aid, he finds she is alive, but without any memory of who she is or where she has come from. The only clue to her identity is the broken violin lying at her side. The artist tries to help her remember her past, and finds himself falling in love, but as secrets from the woman's forgotten life start to come to light, he finds his new romance turning into a nightmare...
