Alicja has no memory and no knowledge about how she lost it. In two years, she manages to build a new, independent self away from home. She doesn’t want to remember the past. So when her family finds her, she is forced to fit into the roles of a mother, daughter and wife, surrounded by what seem to be complete strangers. What remains once you forget that you loved someone? Is it necessary to remember the emotion of love in order to feel happiness?
