Alex and Nica are young, in love and engaged to be married. The summer before their wedding, they go backpacking in the Caucasus Mountains in Georgia. The couple hire a local guide to lead them on a camping trek, and the three set off into a stunning wilderness, a landscape that is both overwhelmingly open and frighteningly closed. Walking for hours, they trade anecdotes, and play games to pass the time. And then, a momentary misstep, a gesture that takes only two or three seconds, a gesture that´s over almost as soon as it begins. But once it is done, it can´t be undone.

She imagines her mother and grandmother when they were her age and thinks about the first places they lived.
