Head over heels, 32-year-old Sophie returns to the magical place of her childhood, the old mansion of the neighboring von Gutenbach family.
Here she used to spend every free minute with the ethereally beautiful siblings No-ah and Emilia. At seventeen, Noah and she became lovers, and Sophie experi-enced her happiest time yet - until Noah disappeared from her life from one day to the next five years later.
Now a letter leads Sophie back to the mysterious house where Emilia lives alone after the sudden death of her parents: Noah has disappeared again, and his sister asks Sophie for help.
Sophie hesitates, the thought of her great love does not leave her cold even after all these years, but then she seizes the chance: she must find Noah, maybe this way
