In post-World War II Ontario, eight-year-old Alice and her family move into a small cottage along a river, next door to kindly Betty and her handsome and charismatic husband Fred. Before the summer is over, Fred has run off with another woman and Betty has suffered a breakdown. Years later, when an erratic Betty reappears in their lives, a teenaged Alice must come to terms both with the world’s unfairness and with its mystery.
