Julia will soon be married off to the man selected for her by her father but this is not her main concern. Something has been haunting the young woman. From time to time, ghostly images and sounds from the past appear to her, but she can not grasp what could this means. The girl’s father and doctor are doing everything in their power to keep Julia away from his past. She still struggles to make sense of the mystery with her true beloved Romeo by her side. But who is Romeo?
