The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt follows directly from the events of The Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings. The game begins with Geralt's dream about Kaer Morhen, a demolished witcher school. Yennefer, a sorceress and his love interest, notifies Geralt of Ciri, a young female witcher in training and their adopted daughter, practicing without his permission. Geralt finds Ciri and brings her back to Vesemir, her teacher. However, the titular Wild Hunt, a phantom army whose appearance is the beginning of the end of the world, kidnaps Ciri. While Geralt wakes up, he realizes that it was just a bad dream and he is still on a journey to find Yennefer with his mentor Vesemir.
This scene is from an early stage of the story, after Geralt meet up with Keira Metz in a cave through a portal. They embark on a quest, ending up in each others arms by the riverbanks, as seen in this cutscene.
