Fantasy drama. Two lovers, Lucinda and Rob, live in a cottage on a dairy farm. Out driving one day, Lucinda accidentally runs into an old woman, who magically gets up, seemingly unharmed, and disappears. Lucinda meanwhile is tired of her relationship with Rob and begins to play `mind' games to provoke a conflict of some kind.

When Lucinda spots the quilt through the window of the old woman's home, she plots to get it back.
