And above us the indifference of the stars. It is this indifference that makes us search for love. Pia, a writer, and the painter, Gil, live by the Rio Negro deep in the Amazonian jungle. One night, during a lunar eclipse, Pia is murdered. Her death plunges Gil into a world of shadows. He leaves the town by the river and does not return to the house he shared with Pia until two years later. There, Pia is present in the flood of memories that keep coming back to him, and she also lives on in his heart. This love, the comfort it brings to him, and the girl, Elsa, lead him out of the darkness back into the light, back to life. And he will meet Pia’s murderer.
