Synopsis

The woman.



Susannah is very successful. She is pulled in every direction, every day; as a doctor, a researcher, a professor, a wife, a mother and a woman. She doesn't realise it, but she is at breaking point.



The unthinkable.



After a frantic morning, with a disrupted routine and an emergency call from work, Susannah leaves her young daughter in the car on a hot day. It is hours before she realises her mistake, but it is too late.



The trial.



Adelaide is a reporter covering Susannah's negligence trial. The story is all too familiar, stirring up the ghosts of her own long-buried past.



The verdict.



As Adelaide and Susannah circle closer to each other, as the jury considers its verdict, both women are forced recognise that they are both already living out the worst punishment imaginable.



But what will the court say?
