Wendy Gould is a happily married suburban mom who, in a moment of weakness, follows an attractive stranger up to his hotel room where a horrifying murder takes place and she's the only witness. Now she's forced to run from rogue federal agents determined to keep her silent, even if it means killing her.
Lauritzia Velez, meanwhile, is a devoted young nanny whose deadly past has forced her into hiding. But that past has caught up with her.
Scared and alone, these two women with nothing in common must join forces and embark on a dangerous odyssey to find the truth. Their desperate hunt will lead them into a nefarious web of treachery, lies, and corruption involving drug lords, arms dealers, and shadowy figures in the highest echelons of government.
