Mia is an outsider. The child of an English mother, she has been brought up by her stepmother, and her uncle, who runs a charitable - and controversial - school for North Korean defectors.
In her work as a translator at the British Embassy, she has become infatuated with Thomas, a diplomat with a self-destructive character. When an outrageous indiscretion endangers Thomas' position, she saves him from humiliation and rescues his career.
As a reward for his new-found rectitude, Thomas is asked to produce an audit on security among the Embassy staff. Learning of Mia's connections to the defectors' school, he is forced to dig deeper into the life of the woman who has captivated him...
Suddenly, all that Mia has done to get close to Thomas begins to cause her undoing.
