Ava, nearing her late 50s, has just been released from almost thirty years of prison after being "wrongly" convicted of murdering a pre-teen boy. It was all the more difficult to prove her innocence because the boy was the son of the married man Ava had an affair with at work; a man that abruptly ended things with her in order to stay with his family. The British press depicted her as a monster and the public opinion believed all the lies they were fed about her. With Ava's time now served, she just wants to put all of that behind her and move on in peace in a small town. The government has provided her with a new identity so that she can smoothly integrate back into society without being recognized and shunned.   While appreciating the quiet time at home alone and tending to her garden, she strikes up a charming friendship with her neighbor Bill who, in a very gentlemanly manner, starts to woo her. Yes, after spending so much time in prison for doing something she didn't do, this is the quiet life that Ava has been waiting for. Then one day her photo is taken and printed in the local newspaper for having saved a little child from being run over by a car at a busy intersection. She was a hero. But someone who has recognized Ava for her crime sends her threatening notes and begins following her. Little by little, Ava's new existence starts to unravel, particularly when she starts to suspect that the person menacing her is Bill's daughter, Amber. As her new world slowly falls in around her, sweet, innocent, wrongly accused Ava may turn out to be someone quite unexpected.
