Una famiglia prospera e laboriosa appartenente alla comunità amish, gli Slabaugh, è distrutta da una terribile tragedia: quattro ragazzi perdono i genitori e lo zio in un grave incidente. Il capo della polizia Kate Burkholder, con un passato amish alle spalle, sa che per loro sarà ancora più difficile perdere l'innocenza e affrontare il dolore. E quando scopre che una delle vittime ha subito una ferita alla testa prima del tragico impatto, si immerge con determinazione in un'indagine di omicidio che sospetta legato a recenti casi di persecuzione della minoranza amish. I superiori le affiancano John Tomasetti, collega, amante e amico, e di fronte a una nuova missione insieme, Kate si renderà conto di quanto in realtà sia profondo il loro rapporto e di dove potrebbe portarli. Ma non è il solo confine che dovrà oltrepassare. Kate dovrà scavare anche nel suo passato per trovare la forza di spezzare il silenzio di una comunità chiusa, protettiva, ostile a ogni intervento esterno, che nasconde insidiose verità.
