After her family is murdered and her village destroyed in a horrendous massacre by government forces, nineteen-year-old Alicia flees to her only surviving relative, her uncle Don Oscar, a taciturn man accustomed to living in isolation and reluctant to take her in. Don Oscar lives in a rundown lakeside inn, and Alicia soon begins to help his housekeeper Flora with renovations to prepare the inn for the tourists they hope will soon arrive. But with the war raging in the countryside, the number of visitors who arrive in this already little-known area has dropped to zero. The only arrival is Don Oscar’s son Freddy, who comes to recuperate from wounds received under mysterious circumstances. Knowing the peaceful area won’t remain so for much longer, he urges his father to flee ahead of the encroaching conflict.
