Adaptation of a book by crime writer Saskia Noort, about a successful plastic surgeon who, apart from marital problems and home alteration misery, is faced with a dangerous blackmail situation.
Tessa, working as a successful plastic surgeon, opens her private clinic. She seems to be at the eve of what will be a glorious continuation of her career. As a woman, she is thriving in every respect: smart, professional, happily married and with an intelligent adolescent son. But appearances deceive, because Tessa is lonelier than ever. Her marriage is faltering and her husband is in the doldrums and has a drop too much every day. In addition, the alterations to the house, supervised by a rather alternative contractor, threaten to end in disaster. Desperately, Tessa accepts the helping hand of an attractive friend from the past, exposing herself to the risk of blackmail. Adapted from a book by crime writer Saskia Noort.
