A taut and intricate thriller of secrets and deception; Hugh Eastwood is a rising political star and, after the birth of their longed-for first child, his wife Roz returns to work as a high-flying magazine editor, leaving Charlie in the care of his new nanny, Alice. Newly arrived back in the office, Roz receives an hysterical telephone call from Alice. Her beloved son is fatally injured. When Charlie dies soon afterwards, Alice quickly becomes the chief suspect. For journalist Mady O'Neil, as Roz's best friend, she is unable to comprehend the tragedy. But her boss at the newspaper insists that the nanny's point of view must be heard. Compromised between her career and a friendship and values she holds dear, Mady is forced to investigate and begins to uncover much more than a simple open and shut case.
