Chronicles women's lives over the past 100 years as passed in and around Ekman's own native town of Katrineholm. Anne-Marie is a middle-aged woman returning from Portugal to the Swedish town where she grew up in order to sell the old house she inherited from her father. She ends up staying in the house, alone with the memories of her father, an idiosyncratic character only she truly understood. She is also nervously awaiting the arrival of her runaway adopted daughter, and now realizes that she has never really tried to understand her. Delving deep into the female psyche, this is an intensely moving story about love, in a rich and unusual variety of forms, and also a sensitive and thoughtful depiction of the way in which human beings approach life and one another. It is a fitting conclusion to this monumental epic.
