Gittel is excellent at keeping secrets. She has hidden the fact that she is friends with a gentile (forbidden in her Orthodox Jewish community). She keeps silent when she eats non-kosher candy and when her skirt is an inch too short. She has perfected the art of Chassidim...keeping silent. But one night she witnesses an unspeakable act of brutality against her best friend Devory, leading to Devory's suicide at the age of 9. Will she choose to defy Chassidim and tell the truth or will her life forever be haunted by the memory or staying silent about Devory's death?
