Description:
  Two women from two different eras linked by separate tales of deceit, desperation – and fear. Aliide has experienced the horrors of the Stalin er a and the deportation of Estonians to Siberia, but she herself has to cope with the guilt of opportunism and even manslaughter.

One night in 1992 she finds a young woman in the courtyard of her house; Zara who has just escaped from the claws of the Russian mafia who held her as a 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.
