When she mispronounces some words in English on the first day, she decides she simply won't talk. Ever again. Her chatty little sister has no problem with English.

As she reckons with her hurt, Lina tries to keep a lid on her feelings, both at home and at school. When her teacher starts facing challenges for her latest book selection, a book that deeply resonates with Lina, it will take all of Lina's courage and resilience to get over her fear in order to choose a future where she's finally seen
