Sarah Leslie is still bereft with guilt about the accidental
drowning of her stepsister while the girl was under her care.
Years after this event, the trauma has left her wary of the role
of motherhood and thus sceptical of love relationships.
Now a high powered publicist, she lands the account that will
make her career. The client, Paul Canmore, is a single parent
raising his only daughter, Lillian. As time goes on they fall in
love and despite her initial misgivings about dating a client,
they eventually marry, placing Sarah in the position of being a
stepmother to Lillian.
Despite a promising start to their mother-daughter relationship,
it soon begins to falter. When the newly married couple decides
to send Lillian away to camp for the summer, the problems begin.
Lillian has an allergy to nuts and goes into anaphylactic shock
one night while eating dinner that Sarah prepared. Paul blames
Sarah for not being careful enough with her preparation. Then a
business secret is leaked to the competition and it appears the
lead comes from Sarah's computer.
Sarah doesn't understand what is happening and it is affecting
both her new marriage and her job as Paul becomes more and more
suspicious of her. One night Sarah is alone with Lillian in a
remote location and Sarah discovers that it has been Lillian all
along who has engineered trouble in an effort to sabotage Sarah.
Now that the plan has failed, the perfect child makes on last
attempt to remove Sarah from her life.
