Verena is a young nurse hired to help a mute young heir in an isolated castle in 1950s Tuscany. Self-assured and tender she must nevertheless persuade Jakob that “the dead do not speak” and he must stop listening at the castle walls in the hope of hearing his mother’s voice murmuring in the stones. But as her relationship with Jakob’s formidable father Klaus gradually shifts from cautious reserve to growing passion she delves into the background of his concert pianist mother. And the deeper she goes the more she begins to believe she too hears whispers from beyond the grave.
