We follow the intriguing life of Grace Strasser-Mendana an American expatriate and member of one of Boca Grande's most influential families alongside the story of Charlotte Douglas, whose daughter Medin has run off with a group of Marxist radicals. What follows is an exploration of the women's ability to make sense of the behaviour that surrounds them, as their worlds are made hazy by the atmosphere of evil and innocence that envelops their strained and entangled lives."@en ;
