With her marriage in shambles and divorce on the horizon, Maggie Bryce impulsively purchases an old, run-down house in scenic Sorrento, Australia. This sounds like an ideal investment for an artist of her caliber, but her emotional state has kept her from painting her next masterpiece. As the days go by, the handyman-for-hire chips away at the thorny wall of brambles blocking her path to the beach. But that's not the only wall he's working on. He wants to see what lies beyond that wall she's built around her bruised heart.
