On a foggy road, four lives collide. Isabelle, a photographer fleeing her philandering husband is lost in the fog; ¬†April, a young wife and mother three hours from home, with her son and a suitcase in the car, is grappling with her own escape; and Charlie, April’s husband, who is desperate to understand why his wife and son were leaving. Isabelle’s car crashes into April’s in the fog, and April is killed. Guilt-ridden, Isabelle becomes involved in the lives of the survivors, especially young, asthmatic Sam, and even falls in love with Charlie. But where was April going that day? What really happened? And how well do we really know the ones we love?
