The crime drama follows Cecile, a mother, who’s being questioned by a detective about the her involvement in an assault case. Cecile had came to terms with the disappearance of her daughter; until, one day while running errands, she sees the impossible: her daughter, Andrea. However, Andrea has no idea who the woman embracing her is. Worse, Cecile recognizes the person who pries her off Andrea to be her late husband’s best friend, Jeff. As the pieces fall together, Cecile realizes that Jeff was the one who took Andrea from her. She confesses this to the detective, who doesn’t believe anyone would recognize their child sixteen years after their disappearance. Detective Harris proceeds to question Cecile on the attack. Something like fate steps in once more as Andrea sees Cecile at the hospital after she has been informed that Jeff, her father for as long as she can remember, has passed from his injuries. Detective Harris, looking out for Andrea’s safety, suggests that she get a DNA test to prove that she is not Cecile’s daughter. Andrea, although hesitant, agrees. After receiving the results, with courage and shock, she visits Cecile in prison to see her mom for the first time since she was four.
