In 1929 in the midst of the Great Depression, Kira is born into a dysfunctional family devoid of love. As her insecurities increase, she develops into a young woman and begins seeking strangers to fill the barren void inside her soul. Little does she know that behind her actions lurks danger.

When she meets Frank, a suave man with a devil-may-care attitude in a local restaurant, fourteen-year-old Kira unknowingly becomes his prey. As Frank impresses her with stories of his adventurous past, Kira is mesmerized with his sophistication and does not reveal her true age. On their first date, Frank plies Kira with three cocktails that eliminate her ability to make sound decisions. When Frank rapes her in his hotel room, Kira is devastated and blames her own naivety for allowing him to manipulate her. Still disillusioned by her previous behavior, Kira is introduced to Henrik, an older man who treats her with respect and propriety. Even when their platonic relationship is abruptly ended, Kira never forgets him.

Months later, he unexpectedly resurfaces just as another traumatic crisis overtakes Kira's life. Only time will tell if destiny will finally intervene and bring clarity and reasoning to Kira's future.
