Marianne works kindly and faithfully as an occupational therapist. She leads a peaceful life, but it's interrupted when she gets word that her parents have been in an accident. Bereft of father and mother, Marianne sinks into a sea of grief, but then she meets the hotel tycoon Rafe, a man with cold, deep blue eyes, like a frozen sea. He offers to buy Marianne's home and turn it into a hotel. Although hurt by his cold judgment and hurtful comments, she senses the kindness and suffering inside him, and tries to be the gentle sunshine that will melt his heart.
