When do we figure out what is important and what should be abandoned? A boy, whose brother died in an accident years back and whose sister recently left home, spends a week vacationing with his parents in a town on the coast. To relieve his boredom and homesickness, he starts to write his sister an email every night: a chronicle of what is still in his thoughts at the end of the day, weighing on him. During the vacation he meets a girl on the beach and gradually learns that appearances can be just as unsettling as disappearances, and he finds himself trying to keep his life from becoming a collapsing scene he merely witnesses.
