A woman leaves the man she lives with and moves to a low stone cottage in a university town. She is in self-imposed exile, hoping to find dignity in her loneliness. The weather is deteriorating, the ordinary lives of women are in peril, and an unexplained curfew has been imposed.
But then she meets Clara. As her friendship with Clara grows in intimacy, Clara suggests another way of living – until an act of violence threatens to sever everything between them.
