Linda and Verity were adopted by the same family and grew up together. After Linda suddenly passes away, leaving behind her baby, a man named Vittore visits Verity. He claims he's Linda's husband, who was thought to be dead! Vittore arrogantly tells Verity that he's there to retrieve the child, while also confusing her by appearing interested in her. She knows it's dangerous to be around him, but she doesn't want to lose the child, so she has no choice but to agree to go to Italy with him!
