in a word

Fiona's young son disappeared two years ago and the detective on the case is no help. Despite her husband's urging to move on, she combs through her memories of that tragic day, grasping at clues and uncovering new meaning in shifting words. Highlighting the complexity of language, in a word moves audiences through grief and loss while serving as a reminder that deeply traumatic moments in life also can be absurdly funny.
