Director Paul Seed and screenwriter Rosie Thomas adapt author William Humble's novel about an irreversible tragedy, and the havoc that it wrecks on the life of a divorced mother. Jess Arrowsmith (Siobahn Redmond) is a divorced mother of two whose grown children Beth and Danny were about to strike out on their own when Danny was killed in a drunk driving accident. Inconsolable, the grieving mother enters into an intense love affair with Danny's best friend Rob (Paul Bettany) - who was actually at the wheel of the car when the accident occurred. Her family torn apart by the affair, Jess escapes to Italy with her young lover only to find that you can't escape the secrets of the past no matter how far you run.
