In 1993, a fourteen year-old Linda returned from Switzerland to Croatia with her father. Her new best friend Eta invited her to the forbidden woods above the city. There, two girls started an obsessive, sexually colored game of mistaken identity which ends with fatal Eta´s fall. The following morning Linda returned alone and she begun to occupy Eta´s place in the family. She also connected with Eta´s boyfriend Ivo. Linda is in danger of losing her place in reality, being trapped in another world – a world where Eta comes back to help her to confront herself.
