A successful author riding high on the international acclaim of her first book, a sexually explicit autobiography, has everything - money and critical acclaim. Everything is perfect, except she's struggling to produce a second novel. She has writer’s block. Attempting to meet her deadline, the author and her publisher and boyfriend, take a long summer weekend at her family’s country estate. The grandeur of the property is breathtaking, but it conceals a dark secret that remains unwritten. When a beautiful friend from the past, arrives out of the blue, the secret becomes a deadly problem.
