Every summer, Jo drops her son and daughter off at her mother’s lakeside cabin, where she spent summers growing up and where she witnessed her boyfriend drown one tragic night 16 years earlier. Jo can hardly bear to return year after year, consumed by the guilt of the role she played in his death. Her daughter Caroline, on the other hand, relishes her time at the lake; that is until seven-year-old tourist Sara Starr drowns on Caroline’s watch. Rescue workers fail to uncover Sara’s body, and instead dredge up the bones Jo hoped would never be discovered. Caroline takes it upon herself to find the body, but as she searches for Sara, she uncovers the secrets her mother’s been hiding. And when Jo’s and Sara’s mother’s lives intersect unexpectedly the course of events takes a drastic turn.
