Karen (Amy Huberman), a recovering addict, has forged a new life for herself in a rural town with her husband Brendan (Owen McDonnell) and young daughter. Karl (Allen Leech), an old boyfriend, arrives in town out of the blue, bringing with him memories of Karen's shady past, invading and shattering her new idyllic present. Fearful that Karl will jeopardise her family by revealing details about her past, Karen reluctantly agrees to take a trip with Karl to meet another old acquaintance who Karl claims has evidence that could compromise them both. Ghosts must be laid to rest and horrors acknowledged, before the perfect surface of Karen's life can be restored. Nothing is as it seems, but the past will be buried one way or another.
