One summer night, Claire, 19, is attacked and raped. The violence of the attack destroys her world: physical expression is denied, desire is dead, words say the opposite of what they mean.
Claire can’t bring herself to talk about the incident and is torn apart by the secret she’s buried deep inside herself. Words can no longer express who she is and she hides from herself and the world.
She experiments, trying to prove to herself that she’s still alive, steeps herself in booze and sex, searching for a spark.
These clashes with others and herself give her the strength to live, speak out. She discovers a new meaning to desire.
No matter what happens, life is the thing.
