On a day when Gabriel returns home late after finishing his shoot, Alicia Berenson shoots him brutally five times in the face, and from that incident, she never speaks a word to anyone even to the police inquiry.
She refuses to talk, went into depression, and went through a mentally traumatic state due to this incident and become completely A Silent Patient. She didn’t even tell anything in the Police trial and Court.
The only clue police are able to collect is the signed “ALCESTIS” which is created by Alicia’s state of mind.

As six years passes and the plot jumps to a current timeline and introduces a Forensic psychotherapist Theo Faber, who had tremendous interest in this high-profile case from the beginning and now acquires through some settlement with the doctor.
Theo has only six weeks to talk and he finds that Alicia was given overdosed by the primary therapist Christian West and he requests him to lower her dose so Theo could get some insights from Alicia.
During Theo’s investigation, he comes to know through Alicia’s neighbor Barbie Hellmann that she had a stalker just some days before Gabriel’s murder takes place.
Besides the groove, we come to know about Thoe’s personal life as he has had some mental health problems in the past because of her wife Kathy who betrayed her and had an affair.
