Yet on this night, Andrea Wilson-a woman who seemingly has everything-awakens to a living nightmare. Her husband Paul is dead, she's covered in his blood, and the police are banging on her door. Andrea doesn't remember what happened, but she knows how it looks. With just a split second to make a choice, Andrea decides to run, and in doing so risks everything in an attempt to clear her name.
