Natasha, a young Ukrainian woman saved by Pietro from forced prostitution, now lives in the Alpine house with Assunta, Roccia and Chiara. The woman’s frightened gaze conceals a painful past that has suddenly resurfaced. Pietro feels responsible for Natasha’s life and will do anything to help her, even if it means risking his own…
Natasha desperately wants to find her son, who was taken from her two years earlier by her exploiters. Yet she finds herself tangled in something far bigger than herself, and will need not only the help of Pietro and the police (Vincenzo on the front line), but also Tommaso, the new arrival to the Forestry Corps. Tommaso is cold and disinterested, but thanks to Natasha, with whom he develops a sincere relationship, his heart is softened and he is able to overcome a painful past…
Even Chiara and Giorgio are dealing with the ups and downs of their relationship, recently marked by more “downs” than ever before.
It all began with a promise to wed… the two of them decided to join their lives forever.
Yet things aren’t as easy as they had thought. Giorgio wants to prove to everyone that he can take care of Chiara and doesn’t participate in the competition to get into the Forestry Corps. Chiara instead wants to acquire independence and finds a job as an assistant to the famous and intriguing chef Karl Reuter, who encourages her to believe in herself and in her own talent. Even Giorgio will try and figure out his direction in life, with the encouragement of the blissful and clever Manuela, the police commissioner’s younger sister and somewhat lazy law student that Giorgio becomes friends with.
And Vincenzo? Silvia, after having someone else’s baby, has moved on and left him alone once again. The police commissioner, however, doesn’t know that he is about to meet someone new- the beautiful and naïve Eva, a Spanish model who is forced to do social service work in San Candido. Eva draws Vincenzo out of his dark tunnel by forming a deep friendship with him, a friendship that could turn into something more… Yet the tables turn and Vincenzo’s personal life becomes complicated when Rico, Eva’s stylish boyfriend who is also from Naples, arrives in San Candido.
