But memories of the tragedy are vividly and powerfully called up when Niamh comes to Planten to nurse the dying Taggart, enraged and imprisoned in his wasting body. Niamh quickly becomes embroiled in the manipulations and deceptions of the Taggart family, but her questions about Miriam's death meet with a wall of silence from both the family and the villagers. As Niamh slowly and painfully uncovers the truth, it becomes apparent that her own fate is bound up with that of Miriam..
