For different reasons, Ali and Ava each feel lonely. They will meet thanks to their mutual affection for the daughter of Ali's Slovak tenants, Sofia (6), for whom Ava is the school assistant. Ava's warmth and kindness comfort Ali as she appreciates his humor and complexity. From one new moon to the next, a deep bond is born, then a passion that ignites them. But the after-effects of Ava's previous relationship and Ali's emotional turmoil cloud this new love.
