A tender yet gripping story of two sisters, Hannah and Louise, who live in an old house

Hannah has been considered peculiar ever since childhood, when a missing playmate was believed carried off by gypsies

When Alice, the sisters' niece, comes to live with them, Hannah insists that she is the missing child

While playing in the attic, Alice is visited by a strange illusion, which almost leads her to solve the mystery of fifty years ago

Hannah, fearing her long guarded secret will be discovered, tries to silence the girl

It is this tense cat and mouse game between the two that brings the one act play to a startling climax and affords the actors an opportunity for skillful playing, while holding the audience spellbound
