Kate Sullivan has a beautiful home, a career that she loves and a handsome fiancé, Ben. It’s more than she could have hoped for when she decided to get sober six years ago, having finally reached rock bottom.

When Becky, an old friend, reappears after ten years, Kate is forced to confront her past. Old anxieties surface and threaten to derail her perfect life. Nonetheless, Kate invites Becky to move in with her and Ben, hoping to make amends with her former friend. But when their house guest starts behaving strangely, Kate worries that Becky hasn’t forgotten or forgiven Kate’s past mistakes.

Having been black-out drunk, Kate remembers nothing of the last night they spent together as teenagers, the night that Becky ended their friendship. Kate doesn’t know what she did to ruin everything but, if she is to finally find the closure she craves, she needs to know what happened that night.

But what if the truth is worse than Kate could have imagined?
