When she kisses a 14-year old boy named Klatsche, he immediately morphs into her grandfather. Every time she is with Klatsche, the old man continues to haunt her in frightening fantasies that feel all too real. Malvia fears she is going crazy…but who can she turn to for help when she doesn’t even understand what’s happening to her? Malvina must confront repressed demons in order to stop the abuse, and fight for her happiness, her love, and her life.
