Trama: Sally Matthews, cinque anni, ha perso il padre, precipitato da un'impalcatura mentre con Ruth, sua moglie, eseguiva il restauro di un tempio maya in Messico. L'incidente, che in un primo momento appare privo di conseguenze psicologiche per la piccola, al ritorno negli Stati Uniti si rivela devastante: Sally non parla, si rifiuta di comunicare anche con la madre e il fratello, appare assorta in una specie di ipnosi e, in un'occasione, si ritrova a camminare in bilico sulla grondaia del tetto di casa, fortunatamente senza conseguenze. Ruth, tuttavia, sembra non voler riconoscere nello strano comportamento della figlia il sintomo di una grave malattia psichiatrica e si ostina, senza successo, a voler comunicare con lei attraverso i canali tradizionali. Un giorno, però, Sally causa involontariamente il ferimento di un compagno di scuola: Ruth è costretta dalle autorità scolastiche ad affidare la piccola alle cure del dottor Beerlander, uno psichiatra infantile che, dopo un periodo di osservazione, emette una diagnosi di autismo e consiglia il ricovero della bimba in un istituto specializzato. Sia pur riluttante Ruth acconsente ma, quando dopo un lungo periodo di cura i risultati tanto attesi non si fanno vedere, decide di agire per conto proprio, prendendo spunto da un episodio inquietante: la bambina, infatti, ha costruito un'enorme torre di forma elicoidale con delle carte da gioco, alcune dei tarocchi e delle fotografie che la ritraggono insieme al padre. Ruth, che è architetto e lavora con programmi per creare realtà virtuali, ricostruisce grazie al computer lo strano castello di carte, e penetra al suo interno per capire l'origine della malattia di sua figlia. Tuttavia, solo quando la donna farà ricostruire nei pressi della casa un modello a grandezza naturale della torre di carte il mistero verrà svelato: una notte la piccola Sally sale sulla torre, entra in comunicazione telepatica con la madre e con lei rivive il momento della scomparsa del padre, riuscendo a superare il trauma
