Following a car accident that leaves them disabled, two lovers, Cristi and Cami, are split between the recovery of the past and the uncertainty of the future, between memories and desires.  Meeting again in an isolated beach cabin, their initial honeymoon destination, they try to rediscover their relationship and their new identities, to deal with the failures of their past and uncertainties of the future.  But they also have to deal with their changed bodies: Cami lost an arm in the accident while Cristi damaged his lower body.  He is sexually impotent and has to learn how to walk again, like a child.  The arrival of two guests turns the cabin into a small hotel, with guests carrying their own luggage of memories and desires, but when the holiday is over, Cristi and Cami have time, in their secluded house, to learn new ways to make love.
