Un matin ensoleillé de mai, trois petites filles sont sur le chemin de l'école. Une heure plus tard, l'une d'entre elles est morte.
Quinze ans passent. Kitty vit enfermée en elle-même, dans une maison de repos. Elle n'a aucun souvenir de l'accident qui lui a fait perdre l'usage de la parole.
Professeure d'arts plastiques, sa soeur Alison semble quant à elle bien remise de l'événement. Mais les apparences sont trompeuses. Instable et fauchée, elle décide de postuler à un emploi d'enseignante dans une prison pour hommes. C'est l'occasion idéale de se remettre à flot et de réparer les pots cassés.
Dans l'ombre, quelqu'un les observe. Quelqu'un qui cherche à se venger de l'accident et qui ne s'arrêtera devant rien pour faire éclater la vérité.
Lily, une jeune avocate, épouse Ted, qu'elle trompe quelque temps plus tard avec Joe, un homme condamné pour meurtre et envers qui elle éprouve une attirance inexpliquée. Carla, 9 ans, est la jeune voisine de Lily, une fillette solitaire qui semble cacher un lourd secret. Seize ans plus tard, les deux femmes se rencontrent et un douloureux passé refait surface.
