Two elderly ladies find a young scared girl huddling in a ditch. She's hurt, dirty, cold, and hungry. They don't know where she came from, or where she was heading. Suspecting she's a runaway, they take her home, not even knowing her name because she isn't talking. And she won't until she learns if she can trust them or not. No one else so far has been kind enough to care. Who is she, and why?
