When television turned stage actress Bella James relocates to the town of Niagara-on-the-Lake to perform at the renowned Shaw Festival theatre, she is only looking to step out of the spotlight of television celebrity and onto the stage.  What she finds instead are long buried human remains in the yard of her seasonal rental.

Upon learning that hers is the same house where a woman was brutally attacked thirty years earlier, Bella becomes convinced the two events are inextricably linked and that a deeper story was buried along with the bones.  With the help of a detective desperate to prove his worth, Bella begins asking questions that should have been asked decades earlier about a victim no one seems to have missed.  In doing so, she soon finds herself embroiled in a dangerous drama both on and off the stage.
