In 1887, the seemingly lifeless body of a young girl is brought to an ancient inn on the river Thames. Hours later, she takes a breath and returns to life. The mystery of her identity is deepened by her inability to speak, and the appearance of three families trying to claim her. What follows is a suspenseful story of folklore and science, magic and myth.
