Kataryna Baliuk, a gifted fine arts student, is hoping to have a fresh start at Cawthra School for
the Arts after a less-than-successful year at the neighbouring Catholic high school. But her hopes for a peaceful grade ten are shattered when her grandfather, Danylo Feschuk is accused by the RCMP of being a policeman for the Nazis in World War II Ukraine, and what’s worse, he is suspected of having participated in atrocities against civilians. When the story is exposed in the local newspaper, Kat and her family become the centre of a media storm. Her grades in school and her relationships with friends suffer. Her only support comes from her family and Ian, a classmate with whom she discovers she has more in common that just artistic promise.
