AbstractHistoryArchive Description

In 2002, a police sergeant on stress leave investigates the suicide of an old man and his middle-aged daughter in a strange, modernist house. In 1947, an ambitious young artist tumbles into the garden of the same house, interrupting a luncheon-party held by its owners. The relationship of the two events seems initially indistinct, as the sergeant attempts to understand the significance of the suicides in the context of a vanishing family. As she does so, past and present weave a story of doomed love, destruction and the liberating power of art.
