The film consists of three chapters. The Manslayer takes place more than a hundred years ago. The leading character Maara is a young bride who is about to start her life in her new family. The Virgin, set in the spring of 1949, tells the story of a young woman called Elina, who has been deported from Ingria into Estonia during the previous war. The Shadow moves in the present, on the border of real life and fantasy. The main character, Luna Lee, has decided to flee from home. Is there anything besides emptiness somewhere?
Viivi, still on the young side, but lonely, discovers a strange man in her bed one beautiful morning. Panicking, the woman tries to reconstruct the events of the previous day in her head. It appears that it must have been one of the worst days in her life: an aching shoulder, being late for work, a diagnosis by her doctor, and, as a result of it all, an evening in the pub where she realises that you can be as neat and good as you like, but you still need luck… The man who Viivi finds between the sheets in Andres, nearing 50s, an affable bloke prone to mishaps, and a man who cannot say "no".
