On a remote island off the coast of Maine, after years of silence, Liv begins to weave a language out of Shakespeare’s words. A driven neurologist, brought to the island to protect her, commits her to a psychiatric hospital. She becomes a full-blow rebel in the hospital as she fights for her voice and her freedom. What happens to someone who has the immense courage to willingly choose individual authenticity over society’s demands? This is a powerful story about otherness and being one’s authentic self, at time when we desperately need to connect and include the marginalized.
