Even a lone wolf wants to belong...
Fourteen-year-old Linda lives with her parents in an ex-commune beside a lake in the beautiful, austere backwoods of northern Minnesota. The other girls at school call Linda ´Freak´, or ´Commie´. Her parents mostly leave her to her own devices, whilst the other inhabitants have grown up and moved on.
So when the perfect family - mother, father and their little boy, Paul - move into the cabin across the lake, Linda insinuates her way into the family´s orbit. She begins to babysit Paul and feels welcomes, that she finally has a place to belong.
Yet something isn´t right. Drawn into secrets she doesn´t understand, Linda must make a choice. But how can a girl with no real knowledge of the world understand what the consequences will be?
