Claire is newly retired from a long career in epidemiology. No longer does she have an important daily schedule or the comfort of routine. All she has is her empty house and her computer. Desperate to escape incoming loneliness and death by boredom, she begins the search for something to fill her time and give her life purpose again.
Her quest for meaning leads to the Institute of Psychology, where Claire enrolls in a psychoanalysis course taught by the talented psychologist David Brown. Claire is even invited to Brown’s group sessions for women of advanced age, where she befriends Phyllis Kramer. To the shock of all, Phyllis soon ends up dead, and despite evidence of no foul play, Claire feels there is more to this death than meets the eye.
Phyllis once voiced paranoid concerns over a break-in at her home that left no evidence for the police. Claire suspects similar criminal activity in her own residence, but again, there’s no evidence. Using her computer as both a shield and tool to manipulate whoever is behind these evil plots, Claire puts herself in the position of victim. However, what’s the old saying? Curiosity killed the cat? Claire could become the murderer’s next target.
