A female odyssey. A woman travels from one Mediterranean island to another in search of a loved one who has disappeared. A phantom accompanies her in a dance which brings her closer to an awareness of a definitive absence.

Based on the short story Letter in the Wind from Si sta facendo sempre piú tardi (It is getting later and later), a novel in the form of letters by Antonio Tabucchi.
