 When 40-year-old Alex pays a surprise visit to her parents, she discovers her mother has vanished like a thief in the night. Alex’s father, who is suffering from dementia, cannot or will not tell his daughter why. After moving back into the family home, Alex discovers, bit by bit, that her mother ran off because of a painful event from the past. The secret that father and daughter have kept safe for over 30 years now threatens to turn Alex’s own marriage upside down.
