The story begins with Joe,a middle-aged journalist, who is working in Moscow for an American newspaper.

His much missed ex-wife has recently died and there are a few things of hers in his apartment so he decides to sell them.

He asks Kostya, a local friend and informal broker, to help sell her possessions. At this rummage sale is where the story gets moving.

Oktyabrina is a young Russian woman who is in Moscow without papers. She is mysterious. She keeps her friends at a distance while she flits around with her own mostly unknown agenda.

Joe is immediately entranced. He finds out that a kindly Russian official is seeing her.
