In the 1960s, in the seaside town of Portnew, Michael and Catherine spend their summer sprawling idly on the railway embankment, observing the holidaymakers, or hanging around their father's busy workshop. Lulled by the clatter and familiarity of everyday life, they cannot possibly guess that violence will soon spread from the cities to shatter their carefree existence.

Many years later, planning a future for himself and the woman he loves, Michael finds his thoughts turning to the past. As he recollects the many sunlit moments, however, the shapeless shadows that haunt his adult life begin to intrude, until Michael is finally forced to admit the truth about his childhood.
