Official synopsis

“Zeynep Altin (Naomi Krauss) is at the end of her tether. She’s overworked and pushed around by her husband, daughter, and aging father. Her mother’s death and her funeral, which nearly ends in total disaster, is the last straw for Zeynep – she leaves Munich and escapes to an island in Croatia.

“In the house her mother bought secretly years ago, and gifted to her in her will, she hopes to find peace, freedom, and herself. If only the former owner, Josip, an islander through and through, wasn’t still living on the same property…”
