Who is, in fact, the nameless heroine of this novel?
Penelope without Odysseus, Ophelia without Hamlet, Tatiana without Onegin?
Or simply a 30-year-old girl, endlessly looking for a way out of loneliness in a selfish and twisted, emotionless world?
One thing is certain: she is desperate for love. And the surrounding in which she lives threatens to pull her into the chasm of insincere human relations, unthought through love affairs, shallow generational gatherings, tasteless business parties, pointless roaming around supermarkets, time-wasting� And what else can her story hold apart from a series of humorous, self-ironic but also futile attempts of a drowning person clutching at a straw of salvation that�s being carried further and further away by the tsunami of rough and harsh times�
Is it possible after all to find a way out of the world of deceptions, lies and deceitfulness? Is there a place in this world for a little miracle that would fundamentally alter the course of the main protagonist�s life?
Until the last page, famed actress Ivana Mihic skillfully and excitingly seeks answers to these and many other questions through the unpredictable storyline of the novel.
