Forced to flee from the threat of persecution by the Russians, they joined the millions of displaced persons battling to survive in a devastated Germany. With the advent of peace, they find refuge in England. Where circumstance and ambition set them on diverging paths. Through adversity and sacrifice, they each find success in their chosen profession and, having loved and lost, awake to find their dream is barren. Valida the eldest, creator of a thriving fashion label, lives a reclusive life in Toorak a conservative old money suburb of Melbourne, Australia. Lana, the middle sister, living on past stage triumphs, divides her time between a trendy flat off Slone Square London, and long lonely pensive walks on Brighton beach. Brita, the baby of the trio, once a successful dancer, lives in an apartment under an ancient viaduct in the heart of Roma. Where, she devotes herself to her husband's TV career. Becoming the perfect Italian Mamma, without the children. Then a ghost from the past offers fulfilment, a chance for one dream to bear fruit. Fleeing once again, across a hostile and divided Europe, they relive the terrors of their childhood until love, betrayal, and tragedy, climax in a bittersweet resolution.
