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.
