Marta, a young politically savvy and well read Italian immigrant works in a local independent bookstore. She is passionate about books and distrustful of computers. Her love of reading has made her a fixture and trusted source of information to bookstore clients. After speaking with her, one of the bookstore regulars, Catherine, offers Marta an opportunity to work for her and make some extra money. Catherine is the proprietor of a small scale investigation agency and quickly takes Marta under her wing and molds her into a top performing asset. Each task assigned to Marta requires more and more trust on her part, until one day Catherine gives her a rather unusual assignment; very dangerous and bordering on covert.
