Description: Lake Tahoe, California. A mother wakes early one morning to find the body of her closest seventeen-year-old son's lover impaled on an anchor on the beach of their lakefront home. With her husband away and nowhere to turn, she makes a reckless decision to move the body and hide it in the lake. Soon she finds herself and her family in even greater danger when the body is found and, impossibly, she is confronted by blackmailers. She tries desperately to raise the money, but repeatedly fails. Inexplicably, one of the blackmailers softens and begins to help her. But can she trust him? And how can she explain to her now suspicious son what's going on with this stranger whom suddenly begins stopping by to see her?
