Francesca, once a famous pianist, suffers from amnesia. After trying to commit suicide, she is treated in a mental hospital. Her psychiatrist Dr. Larsen helps her to remember the past and events that brought to her present condition. Through flashbacks, she slowly starts to remember the truth about her hard life and people who hurt her. It seems that the only support she has ever had was from her guardian Nicholas.
