Synopsis: Jenny's life has changed significantly since she had a baby. Her days of food activism and urban anthropology have been replaced by diapers and playtime in the park. When she inherits a cabin in Montana, she leaves the comfort of her Chicago high-rise and travels with her baby to a remote part of the country. While she waits for her husband to join her, she fashions a temporary life of independence for herself--one which takes an unsettling turn when she begins a dangerous relationship with the man her husband hired to fix the property.
