As a girl Hera witnesses her beloved brother Baldur - a long haired heavy metal fan - killed in a horrific accident and the experience simply never leaves her.

Instead of moving on Hera remakes herself. She takes on Baldur's wardrobe, his black t shirts and leathers, takes up the guitar and channels her anger into a stereotypically abrasive, in your face attitude that masks - but only just barely - the fact that she is lost within herself and sinking fast.
