1951. Stalin is in power. A woman lives in a world more frightening than any story.
1950s Eastern Europe. Stalin is in power. The doorbell rings. The typewriters of the Secret Services tap-tap-tap away as they record the lives of people. A woman lives alone. She writes stories. Ogres, princesses, myths. Reality is more frightening than any story. Where can you go when you know they are watching? A room of secrets and archives. The files mount up over time, the dust gathers. What is true and what is a lie?
