When Yelsaventa, a rich girl from a Romanised family, takes Mara under her wing, she thinks this is the beginning of her future. But little by little, Mara watches her life fall apart before her very eyes. How can she ever regain what has been lost?
Will a chance meeting beside her ancestorâ's well change everything?
