Sometimes what we fear is the only thing that will save us…. When Hannah’s parents took her to a new school, they said it was to give her a new start. However, Hannah is 11, mildly autistic, and due to her condition, unable to speak. She had a twin called Angel, but when she died, Hannah was forbidden to grieve by her abusive parents and punished when she sought comfort from her sister’s things. So now Hannah lives locked inside a silent life of despair, which she fears will soon end at the hands of her parents. However, a knife keeps appearing under her pillow, and a voice that she thinks is inside her head, won’t leave her alone, and Hannah begins to realize that she may have an ally not of this world, but fear paralyzes. Could it be Angel who, from the ‘other side’, has come to seek justice for all the abuse she’s suffered? And can Hannah overcome her fear, enough to let her in?
