When Rikke Svendsen, a 15-year-old
Danish servant arrives at Ellis Island in 1912, she realizes that a
fellow passenger on her voyage across the Atlantic -- whose advances she
had spurned -- is stalking her. In the chaos of immigration and trying
to flee him, she gets stranded in New York City instead of being able
to meet family in Racine, Wisconsin. Relieved to have eluded the man,
she finds work in the tenements as a seamstress for a film company and
struggles to earn money for a train ticket north. Meanwhile, through
letters and telegrams, she learns that mysterious accidents are
befalling her loved ones in Racine with deadly results. As Rikke pieces
together clues, frantic for her beloved Viggo, she seeks to unravel
what or who is behind the terror.
