Margherita Moretti shares nothing with her father except a knack for painting. When he dies unexpectedly, she dresses as a man to finish the project he started in the cathedral in town. While she's there, she becomes reacquainted with Luca Migliore, a man she knew as a child, a boy who claimed he could travel through time and who promised to return for her as soon as he got rich. Now he's rich, but perhaps he's forgotten his promises. Does he feel the same flames she does when they are together?
