From Curiosity to Obsession
by Georgina Antoinette
Trying to find more information about the child in the little picture, Helena faces the scrutiny of the locals. Being an outsider, she deals with lies and superstition in her search for answers. She was warned, "leave it alone," and don't delve into things she doesn't understand. Her curiosity and tenaciousness wouldn't allow her to give up the search for answers. More unanswered questions arise with the mysterious disappearance of the mother and child. Beyond the threats to obtain the photo at any cost, the danger takes its toll on the relationship between Helena and Dimitris. Throw in Camilla (the "red menace"), jealousy, and suspicion. Helena lets her emotions take her to extremes.
