Her life hasn’t always been all sunshine and rainbows, but it takes a turn for the worst when she and another person are convicted of murder. Grace’s life spirals out of control when she realizes she doesn’t remember any of the murder. She is put in prison, ends up in the mental hospital, lots of stuff. But everything changes when she meets a young new doctor, determined to prove Grace innocent. As he takes her closer and closer to the day she cannot remember, what will he discover in the process? Will he be able to uncover what really happened that day? Is Grace a murderer, or is she a victim?
