Marco is 35, and works at a factory in Udine, Northern Italy to be there and nurse his ailing father. Although his real passion is cooking and Marco dreams of being a chef, he declines a job at a restaurant in Melbourne using his father as an excuse. Everything changes when his best friend passes away; Marco takes over his failing bookstore, and it’s here that he meets Olivia, a spirited Australian chasing her dream, and visiting family in the region. There’s an instant attraction between them, as they’re both trying to find their place in the world. They discover love, but it’s difficult as they live in two separate places with a great distance between them. Against the stunning vineyards, rugged mountains and blue Adriatic of Friuli-Venezia Giulia, these two very different people find themselves on a journey that will change their lives forever.
