by Gilly Macmillan

Zoe Maisey is a 17-year-old musical prodigy with a genius IQ. Three years ago, she was involved in a tragic incident that left three classmates dead.

Tonight Zoe is giving a recital that Maria has been planning for months, but by the end of the evening, Maria is dead. In the aftermath, everyone --- police, family, Zoe’s former solicitor and Zoe herself --- tries to piece together what happened. But as Zoe knows all too well, the truth is rarely straightforward, and the closer we are to someone, the less we may see.
