One day 14-year old Beth refuses to speak. Her father Greg, mother Lou and brother Pads are unable to get her to talk and it causes family discord. A child psychologist recommends she write down her thoughts in a book though little is accomplished. Greg believes he knows the cause of her selective mutism, having heard him on the phone to a woman with whom he is having an affair. At a family gathering Lou's sister Toni and her husband Nathan announce that they are moving to Australia and Beth recognizes Toni as the 'other woman'. This unlocks the silence and eventually brings family dynamics into the open.
