The story opens with a young woman, 35 year old Lena Fulvi, giving a statement to a police inspector regarding her mother’s death on the night of her 65th birthday. It’s a meandering testimony, full of childhood car rides and points of interest in the Quebec Countryside. We soon find out as a matter of fact the mother and daughter were far from close. In fact, she hated the old woman, and is the prime suspect in the death of her mother
