Elaine Flanagan enjoys a seemingly perfect existence in Vermont with her two daughters and husband Dan, a respected writer. Enter sister Leslie, the high living beauty from Los Angeles who is married to the Vic Camden, star of the television series The Huntsman. Leslie and her daughter Cinda arrive almost unannounced, full of turbulence and dark secrets. Elaine's organized existence is thrown into turmoil. The subsequent arrival of Vic drives Elaine and Dan to take a hard look at their marriage and then hide from the truths they discover, illuminating what glues a family or marriage together and what makes it all fall apart.
