Silvia is an artist who lives in a luxurious penhouse in San Diego. Since the age of seven she has lived a secret life.
Jack is an environmental and human rights lawyer, and a keen wild swimmer. Five years ago he suddenly realized that life was not at all what it seemed.
Silvia is inexplicably drawn to Jack, and confides in him about her past, revealing a secret that drives them both out of town. Together they travel across the landscapes of America to Alaska, looking for answers and finding adventure.
