Lindy, recently divorced, has decided that it is time for a complete change in her life. She leaves her job, sells her house and moves away from all her friends to start a new life in a completely different part of the country. This, she has decided, is the time when she can do what she wants to do instead of being taken advantage of by others. She is confident that she has made the right decision and has even begun a tentative relationship with an artist. However, the artist is still married and that creates a tense sexual relationship between them which does not appear to have a resolution. Lindy is a confident woman and self-assured but suddenly finds herself caught up in other frightening situations where she is no longer in control and her confidence seems to drain away. It seems a new life does not mean a simple, uncomplicated life.
