When he falls ill on his way home from school, 15 year old Michael Berg is rescued by Hanna, a woman twice his age. In time she becomes his lover - then she inexplicably disappears. When Michael next sees her, he is a young law student, and she is on trial for a hideous crime. As he watches her refuse to defend her innocence, Michael gradually realises that Hanna may be guarding a secret she considers more shameful than murder.
