Words are important to Gretel, always have been.

As a child, she lived on a canal boat with her mother, and together they invented a language that was just their own.

She hasn’t seen her mother since the age of sixteen, though – almost a lifetime ago – and those memories have faded.

Now Gretel works as a lexicographer, updating dictionary entries, which suits her solitary nature. A phone call from the hospital interrupts Gretel’s isolation and throws up questions from long ago.

She begins to remember the private vocabulary of her childhood.
