After murdering her husband, a battered wife and mother
must bury his body before daylight.
Resigned to a life of sadness and regret at his hideous treatment of his wife many years ago, Trevor, an aging ex-con, spends his lonely life walking his dog and staying out of trouble.
One morning he stumbles upon Melissa, a woman desperate, afraid, and operating on a knife's edge of panic. She's killed her abusive husband and is frantically trying to bury him. Sizing up the situation, Trevor recognizes the pain in her eyes and sees a way to save Melissa, and to redeem himself in the process.
But the price of freedom and redemption will be higher than either of them could have ever imagined.
