The film consists of three chapters. The Manslayer takes place in the end of 19th century. The leading character Maara is a young bride who is about to start her life in her new family. The Virgin, set in the spring of 1949, tells the story of a young woman called Elina, who has been deported from Ingria into Estonia during the previous war. The Shadow moves in the present, on the border of real life and fantasy. The main character Luna Lee has decided to flee from home. Is there anything besides emptiness somewhere?
The film is led by the singularity of the leading character - Maara, Elina and Luna Lee are all played by the same actress (Rea Lest).
