Anna and her father fled Estonia during WW II and moved to England. At the time, she believed that her mother was dead. In 1989, Anna's father dies and shortly thereafter she finds a bunch of old photographs and letters. Reading them, she begins to reassemble a clearer picture of her long-forgotten past as well as that of her father, who rarely spoke of himself. Most disturbingly, she believes that she has found evidence that her mother (whose story unfolds via flashback) may have survived. This drama chronicles Anna's return to tumultuous Estonia to learn the truth.
