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, flashes of recovered memory, the revelations of local people and, above all, the combination of beauty and menace in the huge skies and tidal rivers of the landscape – combine to create an environment in which the past crashes into to the present in a film which asks whether the ‘truth’ is always empowering or is it sometimes wiser to forget the past?
