Amidst the inspiring landscape of Rome, three young Americans abroad discover the artistic and moral freedom offered by that historic city. Together with the childlike Donatello they flourish in the company of cultured Europeans. They are free to live, and free to love. While Kenyon quietly pursues the virginal Hilda, Donatello declares passionate, obsessive love for Miriam. But she is an unknown quantity, haunted by her former life; pursued by a sinister spectre and a sense of doom. Propelled by his wild and unsophisticated heart. Donatello provokes their mutual sin. Now, miserably entangled, their friendship-and love-must struggle to survive.
