Summary It is 1953, and Freya, who had gone to America as an officer's bride, has returned home to begin a new life. She moves into a small house of distant relatives in a quite fishing village in Iceland. But unlike the drab, plump girl who went abroad, Freya, now in her twenties, is a beautiful woman. She is somewhat of a mystery woman of the household, especially to the men of the community. But soon strange things begin to happen in their community. Is Freya a murderess or a godess?
