In the course of a weekend's reunion between two estranged women, a deeply buried and painful memory comes crashing into the present. This is the story of two "best friends": a bright and popular beauty who married her high school sweetheart and became a farm wife; and a sensitive ugly duckling who fled her alcoholic mother and recreated herself to become a glamorous opera diva. In adulthood, each woman has woven a seemingly perfect life for herself -- but lurking beneath the surface is a darkness which causes both to suffer in silence and loneliness. Only together are they able to piece together the fragmented memories of a horrifying event that separated them as children and kept them apart for almost thirty years.
