The Story Behind the Balalaika

BalalaikaPeter Kirov enters Cilla Asher’s life at a moment she is at a turning point. His turning point came two years before, when his lover Katrina disappeared and he spent months trying in vain to find her.

Peter spends his nights on work to stop the continual playing out in his mind of the agony of losing Katrina, and while he works he listens to the music of the balalaika.

What does the music of the balalaika sound like? If you’ve ever seen the movie Dr. Zhivago, you’ve heard it playing in the background. It provides for Peter the soundtrack to his sorrow.

Cilla’s challenge: if she decides that her relationship with Peter has a future, she must break through the haunting caused by his lost love.
