Celina, an autistic nine-year-old girl, is taken into police protection after a chance comment to one of her teachers alerts the authorities that all might not be what it seems in her comfortable, middle-class home. Experienced foster carer Rosie accepts the youngster as an emergency placement knowing that her autism will represent a challenge -- not only for her but also for the rest of the family.

But after several shocking incidents of self-harming, Pica and threats to kill, it soon becomes apparent that Celina's autism may be the least of her problems.

Locked for nine years in a secret world of severe abuse, as Celina opens up about her horrific past, her foster carer begins to suspect that Celina may not be suffering from autism at all.
