The story about personal revenge and redemption is set in Trieste, a town on the Adriatic coast near the border between Italy and Slovenia. A fifty-year-old widow, who works in a hospital, finds out that her husband’s former employer, who is in some way responsible for her husband's death, has been hospitalised due to a stroke.
