When nine-year-old Avery Wooler disappears, the police descend on the quiet neighborhood to find her. As they interview family, friends, and neighbors, they run into a major obstacle—everyone has something to hide and is lying.

Avery’s father, William, was the last person to see her, but can’t bring himself to admit it. He was supposed to be at work, not at home, but he went there after his mistress broke off their affair.

After telling William she can’t continue with the deception, Nora returns to her husband and son, desperate to keep her infidelity secret. When a witness reports Avery got into her teenaged son Ryan’s car that afternoon, her loyalties are tested.

Marion Cooke works at the same hospital as William and Nora and knows about their affair, but can’t see anything because she secretly harbors her own feelings for William.

Jenna Seton, the neighbor across the street, appears to be Avery’s only real friend. She’s reluctant to tell the police that Avery shared a secret that may or may not be tied to the disappearance. Jenna’s older brother has his own secrets he doesn’t want shared.

And to make the police’s job that much harder, Avery herself has a history of lies and deception.

Finding out what happened to Avery can only happen if everyone would just stop lying.
