The first girl drowned. The second overdosed. The third was hit by a car. It appears there is a serial killer in Osijek, Croatia. Vladimir, the detective on the case, has a hard time solving the murders. Plagued by personal hardships, it is Stribor, a reporter, who notches him towards a maze of corruption, trafficking, and politics where the most vulnerable girls are victimized. When Ukrainian expat Olga, wife of a powerful politician, finds her niece to be one of the victims, the three form an unlikely team. Together they plunge into the depths of underage trafficking that crosses Eastern European borders. And the more they uncover, the more it becomes clear: It is a net that spins uncomfortably close around the highest echelons of power, including Olga’s husband. Is it possible that the people who kidnapped her niece work for him? Soon, Olga’s life is not the only one that is threatened to completely fall apart…
