Blind from birth, Martin (Hugo Weaving) trusts no-one except the camera that has replaced his eyes. By taking photos, Martin has proof that the world he senses is the same one other people see. Unfortunately, Martin has never known anyone he trusts enough to describe his photos to him. Until he meets Andy (Russell Crowe), a young kitchen hand whose honesty and kindness touches him. But Martin's jealous housekeeper (Genevieve Picot), using seduction as a weapon, sets out to destroy their trusting relationship with a cold act of revenge.
