The year is 1985. East Germany is in the grip of communism. Magda, a brilliant but disillusioned young linguist, is desperate to flee to the West.
When a black market deal brings her into contact with Robert, a Scottish research student at Leipzig University, she conceives a plan to escape.
Robert stumbles into a complex world of shifting half-truths - one that will undo them both. More than a decade later, Robert returns to post-communist Leipzig in search of answers.
Can he track Magda down? And will the past give up its secrets?
