Fourteen-year-old Iris stops speaking after an unsettling event involving her older sister. She later marries; their daughter, Maggie, leaves home for Toronto at age seventeen, cutting off all communication with her parents. In a small logging town, Henry witnesses something that he keeps secret, at great cost. Grace, who possesses an unfettered curiosity about the natural world and a somewhat eccentric artistic aesthetic, fills the yard of her home with bizarre installations.
