Ten-year-old, Rhona is sent to her Grandma’s to deliver much needed garden sheers. She never returns. Her mother, Nancy, remains in a frozen state for 20 years. She is hoping for a miracle. Meanwhile, at the same time, Agneatha, an American psychologist who has devoted her life to studying sociopathic serial killers, is travelling to England to interview Ralph, the convicted killer of Rhona. Ingrid, Nancy’s oldest daughter, convinces Nancy she cannot go forward unless she forgives Ralph, and the consequences of the forgiveness are surprising. What makes a sociopathic serial killer? Why does humanizing the kill change the killer?
