Julia is a 33-year internationally acclaimed female artist who has wonderful, loving parents and a husband who is a famous composer. Within a few months everything suddenly changes. Julia loses not only her parents but also her husband, and her career undergoes a crisis. The situation is severe and Julia sometimes feels that she is just an observer rather than a participant in events. From the ruins of her past she learns how to live again.
