Synopsis

UNSPOKEN

Mutula is only seven when she sees her father’s throat slit, she is left mute from the shock of the experience, and angry that no one believes her when she scribbles the killers name down. For seven years Mutula remains withdrawn, alienating herself from everyone outside of her small family.

Old Elvis lives on the Dunn street flats only twenty minutes from the safety of Mutula’s block. He works hard in the homeless shelters around the estate and raises money for the church where he can. He is a pillar of the community and the killer of Mutula’s father seven years ago. It was her assumption there are only two people that know of Old Elvis’s terrifying fits of Lunacy; herself and his battered wife. There is now a third.

The after church visits with the Lesley’s are going smoothly for fourteen year old Teddy Riley and then she make’s a fatal mistake. The door of Old Elvis’s tribute room is left slightly ajar, Teddy foolishly wanders in. Moments later Miss Lesley is beaten within an inch of her life. Teddy barely makes it out; she is found shivering from a seizure outside her uncle’s house. The nightmares won’t stop and the fits are more frequent.

Hell bent on revenge Teddy seeks out an alliance with Mutula. If they can break into the Old Elvis tribute room and rob Raymond Lesley of his priceless Elvis collection he’s bound to turn. Everyone will see what a lunatic Raymond Lesley is, no matter where he sits at church. Nervous and frightened the two girls bring in a lookout. Ben Everett is the only white boy in the neighbourhood, private and fearless Mutula is instantly intrigued. Teddy asks him for help Convinced he’s the man for the job unable to predict disaster. On the night Ben isn’t showing up, Teddy collapses on the floor of Old Elvis’s tribute room. Mutula is left to face another real problem, the woman who’s protected Raymond Lesley’s secret for all these years.

As the years go on a romance with Ben seems to be the only thing saving Mutula from a tide of instability. Teddy becomes too sick from the side effects of her epileptic medication, and Ben at times is absorbed in training for the local football team, Mutula remains consumed by her need to expose the Lesley’s.

After a second failed attempt, the three decide a change of tactics is required. They must do the impossible and make Maya Lesley expose her husband.
Convinced there’s more to Old Elvis’s room than a King obsession, a secret even his wife doesn’t know; Mutula goes back once more to search for clues.

Mutula becomes suspicious of the ads Old Elvis keeps placing in the classifieds for a woman named Delilah. Showing Maya her husbands having an affair could prompt a reaction. Then in a conversation with Aunt Rosalie, the community gossip, Mutula discovers Delilah is no older woman, but Raymond Lesley’s twenty four year old daughter that went missing almost thirty years ago. There’s no doubt Delilah was murdered by her father, all they have to do is prove it to her mother. Maybe then Maya will talk and tell everyone the truth. Yet the quiet flat on Dunn Street holds more unspoken truths than the three could have suspected. Old Elvis did the hiding; it was his wife that did the killing.
