The Boreli family is picture perfect with a strong patriarch, beautiful matriarch, and three kids who are reflections of the seeming flawlessness of their parents. Despite this perceived perfection, Joseph and his wife Ellen—along with their children Victoria, Joey, and Lucy—are about to fall apart.
Ellen has always been the strong, guiding force in the Boreli household. She has also been the keeper of its hopes, dreams, and most importantly, secrets. When she is diagnosed with cancer, she must face the inevitability of death and reflect on the family she has created based on lies.
Sometimes secrets are necessary to protect the innocent. Sometimes lies are necessary to protect those secrets, and sometimes lies become larger than truth. Pure evil lurks behind this camouflage of beauty, and all will come to light as Ellen faces mortality and tries to cleanse the tainted legacy she will leave.
