Nadine, a sixteen-year-old runaway new to the city, is set up in a decaying Georgian house by her Finnish lover, Kai. Slowly she begins to suspect that Kai’s plans for her have nothing to do with love. ‘Be careful,’ warns Enid, a sitting tenant in the house, who know all about survival. When Nadine discovers that Kai intends to rent her out to a government minister with special tastes, Enid’s warning take on a prophetic quality.
