Abandoned by a succession of relatives, orphaned sisters Ruthie and Lucille find themselves in the care of their eccentric aunt Sylvie in their rural home town in Idaho. Ruthie narrates the sisters´ story as Lucille moves out into the world and Ruth falls further back into her own family´s dark past.

That´s not the part of life that interests me."
