London, 1962. When six-year-old Ruthie is asked by her glamorous but troubled mother to hide some fancy shopping bags from Lynn the cleaner, she is baffled. In this big lonely house, Lynn is more than a housekeeper, she is Ruthie’s friend. But on learning that a thief (a ‘ganef’, in Yiddish) stole from her mother’s family in Frankfurt during the Holocaust, Ruthie becomes paranoid. And when she witnesses Lynn innocently pocket a silver bowl for cleaning, Ruthie has her worst fears confirmed - her friend is a thief. The actions Ruthie takes to protect her home will cause her treasured friendship to fall apart.
