Until Luke's mysterious disappearance prompts an investigation. Sopoline's response to her husband vanishing puzzles local policeman, Gan. So he seeks the advice of his sister Callie - recently returned from a long and gruelling stint as an aid worker. Callie however, is struggling with her own ghosts.
Meanwhile, Sopoline has an unexpected visitor in the form of the Naga: a mythical water serpent. As Gan finds himself increasingly drawn to the enigmatic Sopoline, his mother's growing blindness causes tension with his sister - who is beginning to suspect that there might be dark secrets in the butcher's wife's Cambodian past.
