Esther, a translator, is recovering from a painful break-up when she receives a package without a return address. Inside she finds an anonymous diary written twenty years ago by a young woman overcoming a life crisis. Esther sees a resemblance to her own destiny in the mysterious text and, with the support of her best friend, sets out to find the author’s identity. The journey that takes her from France to picturesque Portugal becomes a journey back to herself.
