And above us the indifference of the stars. It is this indifference that makes us search for love.
The writer Pia and the painter Gil live by the Rio Negro deep in the Amazon jungle. One night, during a lunar eclipse, Pia is murdered. Her death plunges Gil into a world of shadows.
He leaves the town by the river and does not return to the house he shared with Pia until two years later.
There, Pia is present in the flood of memories that keep coming back to him, and also lives on deep in his heart. This love, the comfort it brings him, and the girl Elsa lead him out of the darkness and back into the light, back to life. And he will meet Pia’s murderer.
Eclipse is a love story set against the background of a crime: compelling, poetic, and delicately told.
