The Taiga's Syndrome
It is true that the loss of love, and love itself, one day disappears? What are the jaws of a wolf doing in the history of a man, a woman and a forest? A woman detective transformed into a writer returns after a prolonged absence and a serious failure, to accept a case that seduces her and might ultimately redeem her. She must find and bring back a woman who abandoned her husband and ran away with another man to the interior of Taiga - a Siberian landscape of grey sky and dense forest. The endless darkness and isolation of the forest absorb all consciousness. Where are the inhabitants hidden? Is there anything else besides the shelter? What can emerge from the passion and the blood? This story, based on a fairy tale and a thriller, reveals why no one is left undamaged by Taiga.
