Sarah Stafford, of Cape Elizabeth, Maine, is a famed artist whose paintings hang in galleries as well as prestigious homes throughout the country. Her days are spent painting at the beach or in her home studio. Although she rarely contributes to housework, preparing meals, or taking care of her teen-age sons, it is a good and comfortable life, thanks to her husband, Clay, who doesn't complain and willingly takes complete charge of his business as well as the chores at home. From appearances, Sarah and her family lead a storybook life, yet trouble is brewing deep within Sarah’s conscience.
A brief affair has left her guilt ridden. Raoul, the man with whom she had an affair re-enters her life in a most bizarre manner and disrupts everything. Faced with the possibility she might lose her family if the truth were known, Sarah ignores the inevitable for as long as she can until events force her to make a crucial choice. Will she choose truth or deceit?
