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.
