Forty-eight hours after leaving her husband's body at the base of the stairs, Tanya Dubois cashes in her credit cards, dyes her hair brown, demands a new name from a shadowy voice over the phone, and flees town. It's not the first time. She meets Blue, a female bartender who recognises the hunted look in a fugitive's eyes and offers her a place to stay. With dwindling choices, Tanya - now Amelia - accepts. An uneasy and dangerous alliance is born.
