During one of Anna's visits to Egypt, one of the female employees commits suicide, an event that makes a big impression on her. For the first time, Anna realizes that you can remain unknown even to those you hold most dear. When the dead woman's husband very quickly finds a new wife, Anna's image is confirmed. It is as if the dead woman never existed at all. Anna begins to observe her own family, her husband and her child, and asks herself what she means to them. She begins to follow Sebastian in his daily round. He turns out to be having an affair with a colleague.
Then Anna finds out that her sister Bobby knows about this but hasn't told her. Anna's father has decided to sell the family house and to emigrate to Guernsey. While helping him move, Anna realizes how huge the distance between them actually is. The world is not as she thought. Can she tell her father that when she is with him she feels like a stranger? Can she still love her husband? Her sister? Can she even return home?
