Sarah lives with her family in the country and feels abandoned by her husband, who's always away on business. When Mindy, an old friend from college, come to visit, the two women decide to take a road trip for a few days. After an evening with a lot to drink and some very personal confessions, the two women give in to intimate feelings they have never talked about. The next morning, the closeness of the previous night has given way to tension and Mindy leaves ahead of plan. Three years later, the women meet again -- at Mindy's wedding. Gentle and sensitive, often using just gestures, looks and minimal touches, the film traces the hidden dynamic of the feelings of two people for each other.
