For Claire Roth, a psycho-therapist with an adoring husband and children, her new patient - Jody Goodman - a witty and attractive young filmmaker - is a welcome diversion from her predictable life. Gradually, the lines between friendship and family, between love and compulsion, begin to lose their focus. This is a psychological thriller.
