Amid the turmoil of 1927 Shanghai, three women – one Russian, one Chinese, and one French – determine the tragic fate of a young piano prodigy. Which of them is really responsible? The Russian narrator, Tatiana, recalls the complex relationships between the women and the effect they had on each other's lives. Tatiana suspects she may have been the catalyst for a series of devastating events because, against her better judgment, she chose to tell the truth.
