On a hot summer day in 1973, 19-year old Swedish-American girl Jenny, living in Mora, Minnesota, loses her family in a spooky hit-and-run car accident. In order to come to terms with her loss, she goes to sea. But she soon, however, changes her mind. She decides to look for her roots in Mora in Dalarna, Sweden, her Granddad Wally's native village.
On her way to Mora, Jenny gets attacked and loses her memory. Who is she? And from where does she come? Young police assistant Sven finds Jenny unconscious in the forest. The two youngsters soon form a deep friendship, which later develops into love.
Sven learns that his upbringing is based on a lie. His Mum is not at all the one he had believed. Will Sven find his real parents?
And who killed Jenny's father and brother?
Another woman, who twenty years earlier had lived with the Amish people, is searching for her family. Will she find them?
The story is tightening. Friends and neighbours from both Australia, USA and Sweden meet in Swedish Mora, where they all get a horrible explanation.
But so much is still left before Jenny can come to peace in her distorted mind. Will she succeed?
