The summer of 1978, ten-year-old Vicki Anderson rides her bike to the local park and goes missing. Her tight-knit neighborhood will never be the same. Down the street from Vicki's house, another family is in crisis. Troubled, headstrong Natalia Kisch has abandoned her husband and two daughters for another man. Frank Kisch is left to raise his daughters alone, oblivious to their struggles with both disappearances. Seventeen-year-old Eva plunges into an affair with her married high school teacher. And nine-year-old Sissy escapes to a world of imagination and storytelling. So when Natalia returns, the tensions that have built over the summer erupt into a series of events that change the Kisches irrevocably.
