Synopsis:

On a hot summer day, a bicycle is found in a wheat field - the exact scene of a crime committed 23 years ago. This time 13 year-old Sinikka is missing. While the investigator of the unresolved case and a young colleague start their inquest, for Sinikka's parents an agonizing period of waiting and uncertainty begins. The summer heat lies over the modest family homes and, behind the doors, once intact worlds begin to fall apart.
