Axel Petersen’s life implodes as his teenage daughter disappears. Exactly twenty years later, Axel meets a girl of around the same age on a train. At the station, he gives her a lift home. Then she disappears too. Axel searches for her, as he feels a strong connection and he’s right, although in ways he can hardly begin to imagine.
