Lucie presumes that her husband Paul, an older neurosurgeon, has an affair. Indeed, Paul behaves strange lately, but the truth behind it is more complicated.
Paul has never questioned his choices. Married right out of med school to the stunning Lucie, who set aside her own career to accommodate his brilliant one as a brain surgeon, he has been faithful, has earned the respect of his peers, raised a son and built a lovely home. Life is good. But now, in the autumn of his life, something might threaten all that. It starts after a chance meeting with young and mysterious Lou who keeps turning up in his life. When roses are delivered daily at his office and home, Paul presumes Lou is stalking him, yet he can’t resist the lure of an ambiguous and dangerous relationship with her. Fascinated by her emotional frailty, her mystery and grace, Paul fails to see that he might be the target of a sinister plot, something dark and twisted that could threaten everything he’s built and everyone he loves.
