In her early years, Allie and her bohemian mother, Helena, were always on the move. Now Helena keeps people at arm's length: relationships never last, and old friends have slipped away. But when Allie inherits Helena's childhood home, she begins to see snatches of the tormented past her mother has been running from.... Determined to find out what keeps driving her mother away from people, Allie follows a lead to the beautiful island of Ischia.
