Mark, a young deaf man, adopted by hearing parents, is determined
to uncover the truth about his past but in so doing reveals a tragic family secret.
Mark and his girlfriend, Kate, travel to Suffolk to find out about his birth mother, and why she gave Mark up for adoption. However, the atmosphere at his birth mother’s cottage, the revelations of local people and fractured memories of the past combine to overwhelm him. The past crashes into the present in a film that asks whether the ‘truth’ is always empowering or is it, sometimes that it remains hidden?
