Indifferent lovers Colin and Mary travel to the famed Italian hot spot to rekindle their love. As their emotionally icy relationship shows signs of thawing, the couple meets another duo: Robert and Caroline.

Little do Colin and Mary realize, Robert and Caroline have been following them, with the most sinister plans in mind.
