On stage, with her angelic face and red hair swept into a French twist, Rebecca Benjamin appears younger than her 22 years, but her talent as a concert pianist has been developed beyond her years and her music charms audiences throughout Europe. As the story opens, Rebecca is about to leave the home she shares with her grandmother in Vienna and travel to Los Angeles for her sister Miriam's wedding. But in LA, as Miriam is planning for her extravagant and traditional wedding, there is a neo-Nazi group residing in a compound they call "Winterhaven" that has plans of their own for the young bride. The group's leader, Magnus, who was once a member of Hitler's inner circle, now in his old age has dreams of a new and more powerful Nazi regime.
