Washington State, late nineteenth century.

During the frenzied historical era commonly known as the Klondike Gold Rush, amysterious woman arrives in Woodsburgh, a small mining town close to theCanadian border. It's been a few years sincethe Swanson mine was closed following the terrible accident that claimed thelives of so many men and women, including the owner's and the city it's stillstruggling in search for a new place on the map of the country. Elegant and extraordinarily wealthy, LadyHellaine arrives in the city accompanied by her faithful butler Goodwill andsettles in one of the most luxurious mansions in town.

A lifestyle thatcontrasts sharply with that of the majority of the population, forced to choosebetween humble crafts and illegalactivities. No one is aware of the reasonsthat led such a classy lady to move from Seattle to the small village, but herarrival certainly did not go unnoticed. Especially in the eyes of Lady Swanson,widow of the late mine owner and leading figure of the local bourgeoisie.
