It’s love at first sight when bridesmaid Senta meets handsome young Philippe at the wedding of his younger sister. Though their passion for each other is as obvious as it is unquestionable, Philippe soon discovers that Senta’s life is shrouded in mystery and her stories surrounding her past anything but believable. When one day she asks Philippe for proof of his love, Philippe must come to terms with who his lover might really be. Is this just another of Senta’s fantastic tales and how far is Philippe willing to go, even as his love for her seems to know no limits?
