Elisabeth Vogler is an actress who refuses to talk because of some deep secret. Her nurse, Alma, talks to her every day, but Elisabeth still is not responding. Alma may have an ulterior motive for helping Alma, and it could be dangerous for Elisabeth. There comes a time Elisabeth is able to articulate her secrets to Alma, but something odd begins to happen and there is no going back with it. Help comes in many forms and Alma’s type is unconventional. Whether she means well or something fishy is in the future for the two women, who might lose complete control.
