Lisa is leading the charmed life of a diplomats wife in China, enjoying the attentions of her husband, Richard, a solid and hardworking man. But the marriage is troubled by experiences they had prior to their relationship and by their inability to deal with them. Lisas nights in the spacious apartment are not only disturbed by this, but also by events that took place in another part of the world some thirty years ago. Her mind keeps returning to those long past events which inexorably draw her back to another life, the memory of which will not allow her to find peace until she uncovers the truth behind a mysterious series of murders that took place in a small German village in the 1970s. Confronting the facts of the past forces her to make sense of the inevitable consequences of a doomed childhood, the chaos in the lives of world-weary travellers who greedily consume things and indulge in lust and love, and, ultimately, to come to terms with the limitations and prospects of her marriage.
