Plot summary

Born deaf and dumb, Edit spent her entire life in a cottage in the forest with her animals. In the village, rumours about her past abound. In 2010 and at the age of 92 Edit dies. Shortly afterwards, as if in a detective novel, documentary filmmaker Rebecka Rasmusson begins to investigate her story. What emerges is the powerful portrait of a woman, her distressing fate and vulnerability.
