2012. Photographer Valentina Rosselli has been invited to participate in a show of erotic photography in London, an opportunity she finds impossible to turn down. Yet London is where her ex-lover Theo Steen now lives. Deep down Valentina knows that Theo is the only man she's ever loved. Is it possible that they could rekindle their passion, or has she lost him forever?

1948. Maria leaves Italy to study contemporary dance in London, where she falls passionately in love for the first time - but when she follows her lover to post-war France, with its hidden underworld of latent desire, she finds that love induces her to behave in ways she never thought possible.

As Valentina uncovers Maria's story, and its ties to her own, she begins to question how much one should change for love. Is she brave enough to risk her heart and step over the edge?
