Young executive Tom Marr seems to have it all...Sharp sports car, plush apartment, beautiful fiancee, Darcy Sutherland...but when Darcy's brother, Kevin, is suddenly killed, Tom is deployed by Angelica Sutherland, matriarch of the wealthy and powerful family, to convince Kevin's widow to leave town with her two young sons. Tom reluctantly agrees and his world begins to spin out of control. Instead of encountering the femme fatale he has been warned of, Tom discovers that Julie Sutherland is not only hauntingly lovely, but kind and compassionate as well. Tom and Julie find themselves falling in love which in turn leads to tragedy, truth, and triumph for the small town of Kings Crossing, New York where in acuality nothing proves to be quite what it first appears.
