In a Balkan country mending
from war, Natalia, a young doctor, is compelled to unravel the mysterious
circumstances surrounding her beloved grandfather's recent death. Searching for
clues, she turns to his worn copy of The
Jungle Book and the stories he told her of his encounters over the years
with "the deathless man." But most extraordinary of all is the story
her grandfather never told her--the legend of the tiger's wife.
