Tim Morrison seems to be a model of respectability - until the day he comes home to tell his devoted wife Felicity that he is no longer the trusted partner in a solicitors' firm. He has been fired - and may go to jail - because he has been caught 'borrowing' the money his clients trusted him with. At first there seems to be hope: Tim's mother will give him enough money and more to pay back his partners. Against her better judgement, Felicity agrees to cope with her shame - and Tim's broken-hearted mother - without sharing his secret with their daughter. But then the truth begins to come out - about Tim's other secrets and lies. Soon it seems that no matter what Felicity does, Tim's dishonesty will ruin the lives of all three women.
