Greer Gordon lives in Italy with Mischa Svoboda, a driven Czech-born painter with a booming international reputation. Their explosive love affair caused Greer to abandon her husband and job, to sever all contact with home, and to embark upon a nomadic life with Mischa. Tony, a young American art critic, has been researching a biography of Mischa and has come to the small Italian hilltop community where they now live to interview the artist. Greer is consumed by anxiety, fearing Tony may have unearthed a buried secret she had intended to write out of her life story. It soon becomes clear that Tony is manipulating the couple in order to produce a more exciting conclusion to his book. As her hand is slowly forced, Greer must finally examine her past actions, and in the process she makes a life-changing discovery.
