Review: Mad's life has been planned for her by her mother, but Mad is not at all sure she can be everything her mother demands. She just wants to escape it all, to be lost. That summer while swimming in a lake, Mad's world gets more complicated when she bumps into a dead woman's body, brings the corpse to shore, but then cannot get over the event. She feels compelled to find the dead woman's son and the two eventually connect in a complicated story of love, lies, depression, family issues, and desire to save others.
