Synopsis by Sandra Brennan

Shot on location in and around Rome, this drama chronicles the tragic love affair between a frustrated artist and the troubled American woman who provides him with much-needed inspiration. The artist, who leaves the ancient city because he is overwhelmed by the abundance of great art, first sees his new love as she dives into a moonlit mountain lake near the cabin he has rented. She turns out to be an American who has come to the lake to recover from a mental trauma. Love blossoms and the two make wedding plans, but then the sister of the girl shows up and tragedy ensues.
