In a bleak, remote town, a small child is murdered. Suspicion falls on nine-year-old Lizzie. Angela, Lizzie's young mother, is convinced her daughter is guilty. She must make the torturous choice between ignoring what her intuition tells her, and presenting Lizzie to the police with painfully extracted information. Lizzie is constantly haunted by a 'Wolf', which seems to overwhelm her and, in her own words, 'swallow' her. It is not only Lizzie who is changed forever by the act.
