Two women from two different eras linked by separate tales of deceit, desperation - and fear. Aliide has experienced the horrors of the Stalin era and the deportation of Estonians to Siberia, but she herself has to cope with the guilt of opportunism andeven manslaughter. One night in 1992 she finds a young woman in the courtyard ofher house; Zara who has just escaped from the claws of the Russian mafia who held her asa sex slave. Aliide and Zara engage in a complex arithmetic of suspicion and revelation to distill each other's motives. Gradually, their stories emerge, with the culmination of a tragic family drama of rivalry, lust, and loss.
