Kristy King, 26-year-old actress and member of New York City’s AWB Theatre Company, barely misses being struck by a hit-and-run driver while on a visit home to Brunton, Pennsylvania. A week later, her brother is killed by a hit-and-run driver. She relies on her lover and fellow actor, Mark Louis, to help get her through the terrible loss. In the process, Mark learns more about Kristy’s past than he ever wanted to know. An old beau of Kristy’s, Richard Sutor, enters the mix. Mark begins to suspect that all is not what it seems in Kristy’s hometown. His off-the-books investigation alienates both Kristy and her mother. Kristy moves out of his apartment, angered by his insinuations and the intrusion into her family’s private life. Can Mark convince Kristy that his suspicions are worth following up? Is he even certain himself that he hasn’t caused a lot of unnecessary turmoil? The final family secret of all, though, gives Mark a shock he will never forget.
