Wild, raw, riveting, erotic: a thriller about the struggle of two lovers on the verge of insanity.

Why not take a chance, thinks Orso, who is madly in love with Louison. She is bipolar and tests his affection again and again. Their relationship is an ecstatic frenzy of devotion until Louison suddenly disappears. Devastated, Orso calls Mara, Louison's twin sister. Their relationship is conflicted and Orso must ask himself: what game is Mara playing and how can he find himself again?
