The story is about the power of friendship and concerns Mari-Ann – a factory worker who spends her days talking to herself in her head to make working on the production line more bearable. However, when a young student is assigned to work with her for summer, the girl discovers that Mari-Ann’s refusal to talk to anyone else hides a more tragic secret.
