After the fall of the Soviet Union, Stalina Folskaya's homeland is little more than a bankrupt country of broken dreams. She flees St. Petersburg in search of a better life in America, leaving behind her elderly mother and the grief of the past. However, Stalina quickly realizes that her pursuit of happiness will be a hard road. A trained chemist in Russia, but disillusioned by her prospects in the US, she becomes a maid at The Liberty, a "short-stay" motel on the outskirts of Hartford. Able to envision beauty and profit even here, Stalina convinces her boss to let her transform the motel into a fantasy destination. Business skyrockets and puts the American dream within Stalina's sights. A smart, fearless woman like Stalina can go far . . . if only she can reconcile the ghosts of her past. Obsessed with avenging her family while also longing for a new life, Stalinais a remarkable immigrant's tale about a woman whose imaginationand force of personalitywill let her stop at nothing.
