Anya is a good-looking, successful young graduate student. She gives lectures on Byron and has a relationship with one of the professors. One day her life takes an unexpected turn for the worse. A victim of false accusations, she has to flee, disguised as a teenaged homeless girl. While on the run, Anya meets twelve-year-old Christine, an orphan who is as desperate and reckless as Anya herself. This friendship becomes a turning point for Anya — reliving her adolescence for the second time, she now is forced to rewrite her life.
In I Won’t Come Back, Ilmar Raag, director of the critically acclaimed The Class, dramatizes the odyssey of two children who have to grow up too quickly.
