A married mother of one young child finds herself hospitalized after a car accident. While recovering, it is gradually revealed that she had an abortion the day of the accident. Her family members react to the news of the abortion in varying ways, and her relationship with her mother is particularly complicated by the secret. Their discovery that she also had a brief affair continues to alter family dynamics.
