Ian, a specialist in spatial orientation, arrives to work at a school for the blind in Lisbon. Blind himself, he teaches his students to move around without using their canes, encouraging them to risk the unknown through the use of a complex network of sound cues. Among them is the beautiful Eva, who he attempts to bring out of her shyness and seclusion, leading toward a quiet romance.
