Eva has a crush on her good friend Jack. But an encounter with him at his favorite bar destroys her hopes: Jack meets another woman there. Before she goes back home, she sees two shadows in the distance kissing. After that, she is haunted by the picture. Something very strange grows in her, distorts her reality and perception and drives her crazy.
