The silo is full of secrets; some are good. Some are bad.
For Mary, secrets form the foundation of her life. On her wedding day, Mary's mother tells her, "A bride should keep some secrets. The veil tells a husband he can get close, but there will always be some mystery to his wife. A woman needs to keep her husband close, but her secrets closer."
Over the years, the secrets Mary keeps add up and compound on each other, possibly devastating her own life, but also sacrificing the fate of the silo.
In the end, what is real and what is the truth?
The Veil is one woman's life in the silo and what she does to survive. On the surface she is living an ordinary life, but in the shadows perhaps the role she plays is much larger than it appears.
