Plot Summary

Elena receives a call from her six-year-old son, who tells her that he is lost on a beach in France and that he does not find his father. These desperate words of his son were the last that she learned about him. In the end, she finds herself on the same beach where her son disappeared, works as a manager in a restaurant and begins to leave this dark tunnel, where she has been anchored for so long. After ten years her life shakes again when she accidentally meets Gene, a French teenager resembling her son. A strong bond arises between them, which ultimately wreaks havoc and mistrust around them.
