A nude portrait called Mirror Woman made the painter Stefan famous. Marco's heart was captured by the sexual beauty of the piece, so he made Antonia, the woman who modeled for the painting, his lover. Their relationship might seem good, but Marco's family will never accept a woman of unknown origins who worked as a nude model. Marco is a member of one of Milan's most prestigious families, and as long as he remains undecided about Antonia, the two of them have no future together. But Marco can't seem to understand that, and Antonia's heart is growing more tired of waiting as each day goes by.
