Synopsis

Ten years ago, Rachel had an affair. It left her life in pieces. Now, writing at her window, she tries to put those pieces together again.

She has her memories, recollections of dreams, and her old yellow notebook. More than anything, she wants to be honest.

Rachel knows that her memory is patchy and her notebook incomplete. But there is something else. Something terrible happened to her lover.

Her account is hypnotic, delicate, disquieting and bold. But is she telling us the truth?
