Three friends, 30 years of shared secrets, one impulsive gesture – and a terrible accident. When friendship goes bad, someone has to pay…
It’s New Years Eve. Three 30-something women – Aimee, Melinda and Lou – best friends for decades, let off sky lanterns filled with resolutions: for meaning, for freedom, for money. After the glowing paper bags float away, there’s a bright flare in the distance. It could be a sign of luck – or the start of a complete nightmare that will upend their friendships, families and careers.
The next day, the newspapers report a small plane crash – two victims pulled from the wreckage, one a young boy. Are the three friends responsible? Aimee thinks they are, Melinda won’t accept it and Lou has problems of her own. It’s a toxic recipe for guilt trips, shame, obsession, blackmail and power games.
They’re not bad people.
But desperate times call for desperate measures.
