Reese Lloyd has the perfect life. Or so it seems. So when his wife, Anna, distances herself, ultimately putting an ocean between them, he is confused. Lonely and restless, he takes on the renovation of an old house, not realising it has links to the past. It ushers in an old love, bringing with her memories of a tragedy he has spent his life trying to forget. Other crises loom which threaten the very basis of business, family life and friendship. His health, reflecting his state of mind, is compromised, forcing him to re-examine everything he holds dear.
