In 1953 Lafayette, Louisiana, Sylvia tries to flee from what she did. The incident haunts her for the rest of her life as she suffers nightmares vividly displaying this calamity.

Still life goes on. Over the next two decades Sylvia insures her own daughter follows a path to success by keeping a rein on Olivia. However, in 1975 New Orleans someone killed Liza “bad girl” Monroe, which shook up Sylvia more than it should have. She reacts by tightening her control of her daughter until Olivia has had enough and revolts.

Two decades later, Olivia’s daughter Rachelle attends college. However, unbeknownst to the coed, her mother, or her grandmother someone waits. That individual has killed before and will murder anyone who might reveal secrets. Age is no factor to this predator willing to send Sylvia, Olivia, but especially Rachelle to the morgue.

This exciting story line freshens up what could have been the trite watcher-killer theme by furbishing characters that seem so genuine so that when something happens, fans empathize with the women as the episode feels real too. The three females make the tale as the audience compares each with one another while also what lurks in the shadows. Kayla Perrin paints a terse psychological suspense thriller that hooks the audience from the moment Sylvia tries to run away from herself until the final confrontation.
