Taglines: Trust one. Fear the other.
Leah Vaughn (Sanaa Lathan) appears to have the ideal life. She enjoys a challenging, fast-paced career as a lobbyist, and Dave (Morris Chestnut), her longterm boyfriend, loves her. And yet at 36 years old, she’s ready to move on to the next phase. Marriage and a family seem like a logical and welcome step.
However, Dave is not so sure. A bit of a commitment phobic, his misgivings lead to a painful break-up. Enter Carter Duncan (Michael Ealy), a handsome, charming stranger whose path keeps crossing with Leah’s. Caring and solicitous of Leah and her family and friends (Charles S. Dutton, Rutina Wesley, Kathryn Morris), their relationship rapidly progresses.
It seems like Leah has met the perfect guy. But it seems too good to be true. Soon his protective nature morphs into something much more sinister. It’s clear that Leah has to end this new relationship and when she does, her onetime lover becomes her ultimate enemy. It will take every bit of her cunning and resolve to escape and outwit him.
