Eva and Jonas are two separate pots of poison, both coming inexorably to a boil. For Eva, the poison stems from the dawning realization that her cozy family life has been a lie, that her loving husband loathes her and has been having an affair. Jonas, for years the keeper of his parents? secrets, has transferred all his obsessive yearnings for connection to a woman who now lies in a coma. Both Eva and Jonas are carrying enough rage and despair to destroy themselves. But when the two of them come together, that destructive potential is magnified to a terrifying extent.
