David Sands longs for a woman who has disappeared and might not even exist, but he vows to find her anyway—even if learning the truth drives him mad.
David Sands is a painter who has just moved into a spacious new loft—he's readying his oils and brushes to begin a new work when he spies a beautiful woman in the window of the facing building. She is dancing sensuously, moving to a rhythm David cannot hear. David watches her and is instantly mesmerized. Days later, after torturing him with her erotic moves, she shows up at his door, and they make passionate love.
In the morning, however, she has disappeared. This mysterious woman has touched something deep within David's soul, and he vows to find her again. But what he finds shocks him. Nona, this elusive lady in the building facing his, died years ago at the hand of her abusive husband. Or did she? It begins to feel like their meeting was merely a dream, or perhaps David teeters on the brink of madness, but he won’t accept that. He is dying to discover the truth, and what he finds just might kill him.
