As Meg approaches home, with her daughter in the back seat, she sples her husband spying on the neighbour. The neighbour is gardening in provocatively short shorts. In the heat of this moment of surprise and suspicion, she hits and kills her two-year-old son, Jordan. Meg's fierce struggle for forgiveness leads her down a twisted path, seeking to save others and spying on people in the hope that she will learn how to cope with grief and guilt. As her marriage unravels, she recalls her own childhood, dominated by an alcoholic and promiscuous mother, and an earlier accident that changed her life forever. Chasing Jordan's dark humour is compelling yet totally unpredictable, showing that the road to redemption is as precarious as it is healing.
