A loss of life, a loss of faith
With the death of his identical twin brother, Ross, Catholic Priest, Rupert Brown loses a part of himself while gaining guardianship of his fifteen-year-old niece, Neti. Burdened with grief and questioning his faith, Rupert attempts to recreate a family home for Neti, made more difficult by the sudden return of her mother after a ten year absence. When he is invited by Athena Nevis, a neuroscientist and atheist, to take part in her research on the nature of heightened religious experiences, he questions the whispers in his wiring that drove him to his life-long vocational choice of the priesthood. Both Athena and Rupert's interest begins to extend beyond their professional relationship, bringing his spiritual crisis to an unexpected conclusion.
