An amateur entomologist searching for insects by the sea is trapped by local villagers into
living with a mysterious woman who spends almost all her time preventing her home from
being swallowed up by advancing sand dunes. The woman and the trapped man begin a
strange and erotic relationship that stretches over years, as the man's hope for escape dims.
