Jessica (Tilda Swinton) is a Scottish orchid specialist who is woken from sleep in Bogotá by a loud noise. The sound, which apparently only Jessica can hear, is of an eerie beauty that seems to be part of the surrounding landscape – either the bustling streets of Bogotá or the verdant mountains, where she is visiting an archaeologist. But is the sound real, or is it in her head?
