A woman arrives in Italy to meet a lover. The man, a filmmaker fascinated by his country, guides her through the places he likes. When he has to leave to film fishermen at work, the woman stays in Naples and continues her walk-through. But in her loneliness, she feels oppressed by what surrounds her.
