Parallel love stories twist and turn around family secrets. Mel has a taste of renewed passion before tragedy strikes, and she's unable to reveal her hidden secrets to Neev, her estranged child. Neev, raised by a loving foster family in Germany and educated at Oxford, finds modeling a bore but joy in the other side of the camera chasing the endangered species of the tropical jungles. Her mentor, Roger Andrews, shapes her talent and her love life though she fancies a young tour guide in Africa. An amateur photographer, Jack, is in the shadows as he discovers the ghost orchid that brings all the pieces together in the mystical discovery of eternal love.
