Lucca Montale, a 32-year-old Danish actress, is rushed into hospital after a motor accident.
She is severely injured after a head-on collision with a lorry.
Robert, the doctor responsible for treating her, is obliged to break the news that she may never see again. Robert and Lucca are both suffering the after-effects of love.
He has sought refuge in controlled resignation since his divorce.
She has rushed into dramatic, desperate acts. Grondahl masterfully deploys a dual narrative, switching with astounding insight between the stories that the two protagonists relate to each other.
