    It is the fiery pinnacle of autumn in New York's Hudson Valley when Lola, a troubled recluse, reports her newborn kidnapped from outside a seedy bar. But no one's seen Lola with a baby, or even heard of him before now. Everyone assumes the boy is one of her delusions. Only Marko a chivalrous, drug- dealing ex-con of Romani descent is devoted to Lola.
