An anniversary holiday to Mexico goes terribly wrong when one of Carole Shipley's two young daughters disappears from a hotel suite while she and her husband are having a celebratory dinner downstairs. Hounded by the media for being an incompetent mother, Carole has never gotten over the loss of Samantha, her two year old.

It has been a harrowing fifteen years, the case has been all but forgotten but Carole continues to grieve while caring for her remaining child, Michelle, who has become a very needy and demanding individual.

When a phone call brings back all the terrible memories of that fateful night Carole is forced to revisit the events of that unhappy time. Wondering not only what really happened to Samantha but if she is also still alive, Carole begins down a path that will eventually uncover some shocking and totally unbelievable family secrets.
