What does it mean to have a voice? For twenty-one year-old Linnet, her voice is all she has. Since she was young, singing has been the lens through which she interprets the world. But at the beginning of her third year of university, her voice fails her and she has to learn what it might be like to live without it. Through her relationships with the women in her life, Linnet tries to come to terms with what the loss of her voice means for her future. Set over the course of one week, with flashbacks to earlier in her life, Linnet deals with the immediate aftermath of losing her voice and tries to decide whether to remain in Ottawa with her girlfriend or return home to Prince Edward Island.
