Alma and Almut share a fascination for Australia and its ancient peoples; their ceremonies, sand drawings and body paintings.

In a seemingly unconnected story, a man staying at a remote Alpine spa unexpectedly meets a woman he encountered years before and with whom he shared a single night. It was in a faraway city and she was dressed as an angel...
