Can Sara find happiness or will her past consume her?
Sara has returned to her beachside home in Melbourne from a mental institution where she was receiving treatment after an apparent suicide attempt. Day by day we follow her convalescence and her attempt to reintegrate into her old life.
Thanks to the income of her husband, David, Sara is a woman of leisure, but she has a price to pay. The marriage is loveless and David is unfaithful, yet divorce is out of the question because of a prenuptial clause which would deny her the resources to look after her small daughter Lily. Sara’s best friend Beverly hovers around the family providing distraction and a sympathetic ear, but it gradually becomes apparent that she is not all she seems.

As Sara’s routine re-establishes itself and her confrontations with David escalate in their ferocity, her inner life of thoughts and memories little by little tell us the story of her past. Aspiring to be a professional dancer, she realized it was her mother’s ambition she was fulfilling rather than her own, while her dream to be an artist, and wife to her one true love, Marcus, slipped out of her grasp.
Gradually the present and the past converge as Sara is increasingly consumed by old passions. Finally, as her life begins to fall apart, she takes a drastic step which serves both as an end and a beginning.
