Help is my bonsai dead?

My wrightia plant has wilted, left only the branches and no leaves after I trim the roots. It like this for a few weeks, any chances of reviving it? Thanks.

Winter season is NOT the time to be root pruning. This task is best approached only in spring during repotting. During this time of season the tree is sending food to the roots for storage; not an auspicious time to be cutting them off. I am not familiar with the plant and to that end I am attaching an address for someone who is, but the prognosis is not good (the site I am attaching says this is not an easy plant).
