Silent is an elegant, at times unnerving, meditation on identity, loss, and redemption. The story centers around Isabella, whose unsettling reunion with Alex—a mysterious deaf man with whom she shares a veiled past—leads her on a dark, isolated path of self-discovery through a terrifying series of sensory experiments.
