Ella Nygaard, 27, has been a ward of the state since she was seven years old, the night her father murdered her mother. She doesn’t remember anything about that night or her childhood before it. The PTSD-induced panic attacks she now suffers incapacitate her for hours at a time, sometimes days. After one particularly bad episode lands Ella in a psych ward, she discovers her son, Alex, has been placed with a foster family. Ella kidnaps Alex and flees to the seaside town in northern Denmark where she was born. But being back in the small town forces Ella to confront the demons of her childhood. What really happened that night her mother died? If Ella can start to remember, maybe her scars will begin to heal --- or maybe the truth will put her in even greater danger.
