Synopsis: Twenty-three years ago on a hot summer day, a young girl named Pia is brutally murdered in a field of wheat. Now, on the exact same date in the present, 13-year-old Sinikka is missing, her bicycle abandoned in the same spot. As Krischan, the retired investigator of the unresolved case, and his younger colleague David struggle to solve the mystery of these parallel crimes, Sinikka's distraught parents are trapped in an agonizing period of waiting and uncertainty. Meanwhile, their daughter's fate rips open old wounds in the heart of Pia's mother, who is visited by an unexpected guest with an eerie connection to her daughter. The unrelenting summer heat lies over the quaint family homes like a bell jar and behind closed doors, worlds begin to fall apart.
