Tapani Lehtinen, a struggling poet, is among the few still willing to live in the city.
When Tapani's journalist wife Johanna goes missing, he embarks on a frantic hunt for her.
Johanna's disappearance seems to be connected to a story she was researching about a serial killer known as 'The Healer'.
Determined to find Johanna, Tapani's search leads him to uncover secrets from her past: secrets that connect her to the very murders she was investigating...
