In a farmhouse deep in the Italian countryside a horrifying act of violence occurs. The one family survivor from this vendetta is four-year-old Nina. And she lives only because of an extraordinary act of mercy.

Many years later, as a woman in her fifties, Nina meets her childhood saviour and revisits the events of that fateful night, events which have shaped her entire life.
