Lorain has been a prisoner of her secrets for almost her entire life. At the age of 13 she managed to keep her pregnancy a secret, discarding the infant and leaving it for dead. Years later, Lorain's mother finally met the love of her life, and Lorain couldn't find the courage to tell her mother that her new beau was the man who had molested Lorain and impregnated her. To complicate matters even more, Lorain discovered that the baby she'd abandoned all those years ago survived, and God has now placed Lorain in her adult child's life. It seems like the legacy of secrets has been passed on, too, as Lorain helps her daughter conceal the true details behind one of her own pregnancies. Lorain has managed to maneuver the secrets and lies like pieces in a strategic game of chess, and is now living the lavish, fairy-tale life of a doctor's wife. But even that is a lie. With the rug about to be pulled out from underneath Lorain by the woman who raised her abandoned child, all Lorain prays for is that everything ends well. In this cycle of lies, secrets, shame, and guilt, will Lorain get what she prays for?
