Ambitious attorney Iris is having a hard time balancing her life as a single mother of an autistic son, with her career as a successful lawyer. One day, while staying at her mother’s house, she stumbles upon a dark family secret. Iris discovers she has a brother whose existence has been kept secret. And for a reason. Autistic Ray has spent the last 20 years in a prison’s psychiatric ward, convicted for the brutal murders of his neighbor and her baby daughter. Iris is taken in by Ray’s faith, not least because she sees striking and frightening similarities between him and her son Aron. Having convinced herself that her brother can’t be the murderer, she embarks on a hunt for the truth. Only to discover a story far darker than she could have ever imagined.
