A man and a woman are travelling on a secondary road on their way back from a night at the casino, where they didn’t win much. All of a sudden a man in a white top appears in the middle of the road and a sharp turn is needed, the driver loses his life in the accident. We are left with a Victim a Witness and a Survivor at a turning point: life will never be the same. Witness and Survivor fall in love but the survivor has lost his memory completely and has no idea who he is, where he is from and what brought him to that road on the night of the accident. This amnesia throws everyone in a downward spiral where past and present blend and the Victim keeps coming back to force the Witness to speak and the Survivor to remember.
