The life of Ferdinand, an aspiring German novelist, changes dramatically on the day he spies a beautiful harpist floating upon a seashell off the shore of the Baltic island where he lives. It is not a vision he sees, but a photo shoot featuring Rebecca, a popular Irish musician. He decides to try to be near her but is constantly thwarted. When she goes to Hamburg to give a concert, the young writer follows. It is the enigmatic and sinister Henry who gives him a ride. With Henry's entrance, the story becomes a thriller as both men seem to be obsessed with Rebecca. The difference is, while Ferdinand simply wants to meet her, Henry has much darker intentions.
