Patrick (Jay O. Sanders) and Elizabeth Welsh (Margaret Colin) were former high school sweethearts. As a teenager, Patrick was everyone's favourite kid. As an adult, he was a loving husband and doting father, but beneath was a criminal who betrayed trusts and stole dreams without conscience. When finally exposed for using university funds for his own purpose, his guilt and embarrassment lead him to an apparent suicide, leaving Elizabeth to struggle as a single parent. Time has almost erased most of her deep emotional scars when she begins to unravel the true mystery of her husband's disappearance.
