An eighteen year old girl named Joy has gone missing. Another girl named Helen is a few weeks away from leaving her care home. Helen is asked to "play" Joy in a police reconstruction that will retrace Joy's last known movements. Joy had everything. A loving family, a boyfriend, a bright future. Helen, parentless, has lived in institutions herself all her life and has never been close to anyone. Gradually, Helen begins to immerse herself into the role, visiting the people and places that Joy knew. Quietly and carefully insinuating her way into the lost girl's life, is Helen trying to find out what happened to Joy that day or is she searching for her own identity?

So British in the calm, controlled way all emotions are almost subaltern in expression of her personality. Outwardly she plays her part in a series of directed activities. She finds the strength to let her inner self be real by assuming another woman's relationships to try to discover why she disappeared .
