Synopsis

Olga, a still young woman, tranquil and satisfied, is all of a sudden abandoned by her husband and falls into a bottomless vortex. The days of abandonment are the endless hours of losses, inflicted and suffered, the times of hard emotions and feelings that devastate her, of the love sickness that suffocates her. In the end, everything is revealed and finally the nightmare starts to disappear: Olga has not risked going insane for love of her husband (what man is worth that much?), but because she has experienced by herself what the sense of love really is, she now knows its cost, she knows how to face it.
