Judith is in prison, on remand, accused of killing her mother. From the moment the police came to question her she has not spoken. Alex, a child psychiatrist with experience of mutism is called in as a last resort to make a psychiatric assessment. He battles against her silence until at last he breaks the dam. Judith speaks directly to another human being for perhaps the first time in her life. An extraordinary story is revealed, and a relationship forged.
