On a dark night in Lusaka, Zambia, an young girl is brutally assaulted and left for dead. In shock, she cannot speak. Her identity is a mystery. The girl's case is taken up by Zoe Fleming, a human rights lawyer working in Africa, and she is determined to find the perpetrator and seek justice. Also investigating is Joseph Kabuta of the Zambian police. At first they are reluctant to work together, their pasts, cultures and upbringings radically different. Their task is not only to help the girl, Kuyeya, recover but, against overwhelming odds and terrifying danger, to ensure justice doesn't fail her again.
