Zelda is terrified that her love affair is about to end, and she prays for something - anything - to prevent the inevitable heartbreak.
Then she is told that her father has hanged himself.
His death brings back intense memories of her childhood and all that remains unspoken in her family.
Zelda hides much from her mother, even the lover she would give anything to keep.
With questions she can no longer ignore, Zelda for the first time begins to search for her father's truth and pieces together clues to his suffering. And by confronting her dark and disturbing memories, she opens up to intimacy with her family, with her lover, with herself.
