Following a tragic schoolbus accident, opportunistic lawyer Mitchell Stephens descendes upon a small town. With promises of retribution on behalf of the grieving community, Stephens sets to work on a class action lawsuit. But beneath the town's placid surface, he discovers a tangled skein of deceit and forbidden desire that mirrors his own troubled life. Everyone, it seems, has secrets to keep. Through a skillful weave of past and present, Atom Egoyan explores the human spirit and its capacity for grief, loss and redemption.
