Off the beaten track, three people stumble into a fateful encounter. Thomas, young and fit, has been dishonorably discharged from the army. Ali, an affable Turkish businessman, has experienced some hard times but now his primary concern is making sure his employees do not cheat him. Laura, an attractive woman with a dark past, finds refuge in the shadows of her marriage to Ali. Thomas, Ali, and Laura keep an eye on each other and keep their secrets to themselves. They all desire love but also security. They consider themselves independent, and what they desire can only be achieved by betrayal.
