In 1941 a Latvian family is exiled to Siberia by Stalin. Sixty years later the son recounts the events to his sister who escaped to Australia. She has survivor guilt, and her children depression and identity problems, probably due to the initial trauma. They all reach some stability from the tale of survival and resilience.
