Summary
Richard Bowmaster, a 60-year-old human rights scholar, hits the car of Evelyn Ortega, a young, undocumented immigrant from Guatemala, in the middle of a snowstorm in Brooklyn. What at first seems a small inconvenience takes an unforeseen and far more serious turn when Evelyn turns up at the professor's house seeking help. At a loss, the professor asks his tenant Lucia Maraz, a 62-year-old lecturer from Chile, for her advice. As these three lives interwine, each will disocver truths about how they have been shaped by the tragedies they witness and unexpected love. It is a story that moves from present day Brooklyn, to Guatemala in the recent past, to 1970s Chile and Brazil
