The Portuguese coast west of Lisbon: A man’s body is washed ashore. In a car parked nearby, police detective Pinto finds a video camera, on tape a young woman apparently unaware of being filmed. Pinto later finds the young woman, a student of music from Vienna, and an interrogation begins, but her explanations only give rise to more confusion. What did Hans, the dead archeologist, plan for her? What happened to the young Portuguese who’s on the video with her? And how do the two other women Hans filmed come into the story?
