Catherine has been living half a globe away from her husband, Vito, for three years now. For as long as he can remember, their son, Santos, has never seen his mother and father together. Vito was looking forward to the next of Santos's periodic visits, but his new lover, Marietta, isn't happy about having Santos in the picture. To protect Santos from Marietta's cruelty, Vito hatches a plan to live together with his wife and son as a family once more. Though her old wounds haven't healed and the fire of their love has long since gone cold, Catherine finds her heart racing at Vito's touch. Are they living together for Santos's sake alone?
