When her photographer daughter, Emma, dies as a result of being beaten and raped, Jacqueline Evannier's peaceful life is thrown into complete turmoil. In her grief, she accepts the consolation and affection offered by Phil Aylmer who happened to be on the scene of Emma's attack.

The loss of her only child sends Jacqueline -- a former prima ballerina of international renown -- down an entirely unexpected path. While continuing to need the solace offered by Phil Aylmer, she is becoming an activist: trying to change the way the police deal with rape cases.

She is also forced to re-examine every aspect of her life, from her casual, ongoing relationships with several, very different, men; to the less than satisfactory aspects of her experiences with Phil Aylmer and his troubled son.

This is an exploration of a woman coming to terms with her entire history and her efforts to make changes both inside and outside of herself.
