Fire Lily
In a remote mountain village, journalist Vera meets a young stranger who has inherited an old house and is trying to banish his war memories. During their walks and meals together, they gradually tell each other about their past, with Kálmán Vera reminding us of her older sister Sophia. When Sophia comes to visit, she also meets the mysterious Kálmán, which creates a surprising connection that changes both of them.

With strong images, Gianna Olinda Cadonau tells the story of the encounter between traumatized people in a novel that manages without explanations and at the same time makes the unspeakable visible.
