The love of a woman knows no boundaries.
A badly burnt unconscious man is found by a party of hikers on a snow covered mountain ridge in the Austrian Alps. In a clinic, Professor Fiona Winters, the chief surgeon believes him to be her lost love, the famous Ethiopian pianist, Dawit Zenawi, who disappeared without a trace three years previously.
Doubt and frustration gnawing at her, Fiona sets out to find proof that the patient with no memory and no face is the man she once fell in love with, and the man she still loves. She enlists the help of her forensic anthropologist friend, and together they construct a model of Dawit’s face. As a result, she carries out the first of a series of operations on Dawit. She befriends the police officer in charge of the search for clues in the mountains, sleeps with him and finds out that Dawit is the only survivor of a passenger plane that was mistakenly, shot down for one carrying terrorist leaders.
Her fragile relationship with her impotent husband turns for the worse, and when funds for Dawit’s medical treatment run out, she takes him into her house ignoring her husband’s protests. Fiona and Dawit become lovers, and Fiona poisons her husband with an untraceable substance causing his death in a traffic accident. But one thing is still missing to make her feel fulfilled; Dawit’s return to the pinnacle of elite pianists, which, she believes, is his right.
However, her application on his behalf to several concert halls for an appearance is turned down. Fiona refuses to accept this and travels around Europe seeking out and killing star-pianists to eliminate competition and put her lover back into the limelight.
