At a remote place where the land meets the sea, a handful of disparate lives converge. Professor Bartleboom writes love letters to a woman he has yet to meet; Elisewin, a young girl, fatally ill, hopes to be cured by the sea; a renowned artist spends his days painting the sea with the sea; a beautiful woman who has betrayed her husband has been exiled. An intricate web of destinies and associations begins to form, but it is not until the arrival of a mysterious sailor called Adams that the truth in all its dreamlike beauty and cruelty becomes clear.
