An innocent mistake. A lifetime of guilt.
Susannah works hard. She has two beautiful daughters, a high-flying medical career, a successful husband and an enviable life. She truly has it all.
Adelaide works hard, too. She used to have it all, but she doesn't any more.
When - on the hottest day of the year - Susannah finds herself on autopilot, she makes a devastating mistake. She has left her baby, Louise, in the back seat of the car and it is too late to save her.
As Adelaide sets up with the other reporters outside Susannah's home, she is surprised to feel a kinship with the woman everybody suddenly loves to hate. But can she really change the way this story is going to run?
It's plain to see that this is not just a trial, it's a witch hunt.
The press is closing in, but what will the court say?
