As the icy winter gives way to spring, Astrid and Veronika are drawn together and begin to embark on a tender and unusual friendship. Confiding in one another over hot-smoked trout and the new season's strawberries, the two women swap memories of loves lost, and the dark secrets that surround them both begin to come to light ...
