Her discoveries are life-changing for her as she uncovers a load of things about her and her family.

Haile has lived all her life with her father knowing that her mother passed on after a deadly fire accident. However, all these changes the moment she receives a mysterious letter lands in her mailbox. It takes her back in time on a journey to unveil the real things that her father had hidden concerning her and the entire family. She travels to the great lakes on a remote island where her mother used to leave. The people there are not welcoming, and from the stares and gazes she receives, it is automatic that some unpleasant things are associated with her family. She is convinced that a lot is unknown to her and this is what she soldiers on to unravel.

Iris lives in the old house that Haile’s mother used to own located on a hill and she takes on the responsibility of giving her the truth that she came to find. What scares her, even more, is the fact that her father faked his death and also hers to escape the wrath of the people after being accused of being involved with the death of a young lady.
