On a weekend vacation trip to Point Reyes National Seashore in California a couple (Jason & Emmanuelle) with their best friend (Michelle) encounter the keeper of the Lighthouse (Billy). A solitary man kind of a philosopher with whom they discuss about his life and how he chosed to be apart of society and live a in reclusive lifestyle. Shortly after their discussion Jason and Michelle couldn’t find Emmanuelle anywhere near the lighthouse. She said she was going for a walk. They look everywhere with Billy. They try to call her to find her cellphone is in Jason’s car. There is no clue where she could have been. Suicide? The cliff is high and steep. Kidnapping? There were few tourists around. They go for the second option: hope.
Jason and Michelle report to the police but no without any clue or evidence the case is not taken seriously. Convinced that she is still alive they interview every shop and gas station clerks around. Finally, at Bear Valley’s Visitor Center Barney, a ranger, has seen the person they ask for and he can describe the car she was in. With only the hope of the description of a car the two friends embark on a journey to recover their missing friend.
This trip will take them not only through Emmanuelle’s destiny but also on their own destiny together. From North California to San Diego they will follow the few clues they could find on Emmanuelle’s path.
