When a respected doctor, a beloved father and husband, is accused of sexually assaulting one of his teen patients, his family's life is turned upside-down. His wife's ex-husband is the cop leading the charge and the victim is clearly unhinged, but could there be any truth to the allegations? Relationships will be tested and torn apart as the dark past bubbles to the surface and family secrets are revealed.
