The Delaney siblings, Amy, Logan, Troy and Brooke, are all mildly concerned by a text they receive from their mother. It says that she is going off-grid, but then the rest is gibberish. Joy Delaney and her husband Stan have been married for fifty years. They had a very successful tennis instruction company that has recently been sold and now it was time for retirement. They don’t really know what to do with themselves, until one night a strange young woman shows up at their door, bleeding. Savannah is allowed to stay “just for the night” but it turns into indefinitely because they are so pleased at the dinners she makes and the life she adds to their empty nest. But the siblings hear warning bells. Something isn’t right about this girl, but Joy won’t listen to anything they have to say about Savannah – until everything blows up. Joy isn’t sure the family will even stay together after secrets come to light. When she doesn’t come home, the siblings are torn about whether to defend their father or condemn him. Where is Joy, and what do Savannah or Stan have to do with it?
