Artur, a successful painter in Albania has a exhibit in Italy. The most praised painting by the critics is the portrait of girl entitled 'Light of Love' that unveils a forbidden love in communist Albania. A talented art student and the daughter of an Italian diplomat fought for their love even against the state. Meeting after so many years in front of the painting, Artur and Klara are forced to confront their history and feelings for each other.
