Alba is a fearless young woman. However, after returning to her town for vacation, a promising night of partying is stained with tragedy when a group of boys sexually assaults her. The next day, she wakes up naked on the beach. A year earlier, when she left her predictable life behind, she could not imagine that in the big capital she would be reunited with Bruno, her neighbor, who she’d never been interested in.

What never happened when they were only a street apart, was possible in a city of four million inhabitants. In a chance encounter, as improbable as it is magical, Alba and Bruno fall madly in love. Nothing could separate them. Until that fateful night.

Inexplicably, three of the four attackers are Bruno’s best friends. But when Alba discovers the identity of the fourth man, the end of the nightmare is actually the beginning.
