While Silva waits for her family's return and the pregnant woman awaits the birth of her child, they are helped by a boatman whose devotion to them masks his guilt for a past disaster. Each having retreated from the world, seeking an elusive peace of mind, the three exiles conjure an unstable mix of trust and distrust, compounded by love and jealousy. Soon the tension in their uneasy triangle mounts unbearably-- and then it breaks
