From -- While on vacation with her family in northern Italy, Rosalba gets left behind at a rest stop. When her husband finally notices that she is missing, he orders her to stay put while he makes his way back to her.

She doesn't. Instead she decides to hitchhike home. But changes her plans in favor of visiting Venice on her own. Rosalba finds accommodation at the apartment of a local waiter and finds a job at a flower shop.

Meanwhile, her husband hires a private detective to find her. As the detective begins his search in Venice, Rosalba and the waiter Fernando begin to come closer in a mutual attraction that neither expects or fights. Rosalba is about to discover a whole new life that she has missed and it's just a question of which life she will choose.
