When Simona’s carefully controlled and highly successful life is interrupted by a sudden undeniable attraction to a (until recently, straight) divorcee named Abby, she finds herself unable to stop from falling in love. But when the act of making love (something she has denied herself for many years) triggers the memories of past sexual trauma, Simona’s façade is quickly destroyed and she is left raw. Terrified of being vulnerable in front of Abby, Simona pushes her away, but Abby, now deeply in love and seeing Simona’s true self, refuses to go. Only when Simona finally sees the pain she is causing Abby by keeping her out, is she able the strength to open up about her pain and decide to heal. The two must find a way to navigate this difficult but loving journey together, as Simona learns to acknowledge her demons, and accept and embrace who she is.
