Pia has a professional interest in fear and memory; they constitute the focus of her research as a not-entirely-fulfilled neuroscience postdoc. But the unexpected return of an old acquaintance forces her to confront her family’s history and tangle with the aftermath of collective trauma, her own demons, and a past that is relentlessly, ruthlessly engaged in the present.
