When Elene ends up in an accident, a friend of hers visits her with along a young man, Ashton Hard. He takes up the task to take Elene's care until her wounds are healed. Little does she knows that Ashton has other plans. He wants to heal the scars of her mind, not her physique. 

Would Ashton be able to convince Elene of the illusions of the gloom she's living in before he has to bid farewell to the girl in the blindfold?
