Three generations of women suffer the consequences of a single violent act. Mimi has no memory of the beating she endured at her mother Eva's hand. Both struggle to understand and perhaps overcome the detachment that defines their adult relationship. Eva's gentle mother, Anna, who witnessed and stopped the event, becomes a thorn in Eva's conscience, a constant unwitting reminder of her shame and self-loathing. Adam, Mimi's small son, occupies the center of this troubled family. He knows nothing of the cause, but is a precocious observer who, unawares, uses the best of his open nature and the purity of his child's love to move the women toward healing.
