Eve is a paramedic involved in a storybook romance with the handsome and supportive Damien. Together, they own a country pub that hosts an annual contest for the most talented animal-call impersonators. One day Eve's life is altered forever. She is involved in a horrific accident as she attends to a patient in the back of an ambulance. Although the flying glass shards do not cause any lasting damage, her scars make Eve "psychogenically mute." At first, Damien tries everything in his power to rehabilitate her, but she finds it impossible to heal. Eve has become useless in the pub and the object of its patrons' derision, and this begins to grate on Damien. He gradually drifts away from her and into the arms of another woman, the manager of the local brewery. But Eve is unwilling to let him go so easily.
