The year is 1977. Phoebe O'Connor (Jordana Brewster) lives in San Francisco with her mother, Gail (Blythe Danner). She has just graduated from high school and is enrolled to start university in the fall. But Phoebe feels disconnected from the world around her, and is increasingly obsessed with the memory of her sister Faith (Cameron Diaz), who killed herself in Portugal six years earlier. Faith was a charismatic and beautiful creature, everyone's favorite - and the circumstances of her death seem incomprehensible to all who knew her.
Against her mother's wishes and using the postcards Faith sent to her years before, Phoebe retraces Faith's path through Europe to uncover the truth of what happened to her, visiting each location her sister did.
In Paris, Phoebe finds Faith's ex-boyfriend, Wolf (Christopher Eccleston) who is now engaged to a Frenchwoman, Claire (Isabelle Pasco). Eventually he reveals that Faith was involved with a radical political group in Berlin and participated in a string of bank robberies, but was then dumped by the group.
Shocked, Phoebe decides to continue her journey, ready now to go to Portugal. Fearful for her safety Wolf accompanies her. What will they find there?
