When she hints at leaving him, he takes a cruel revenge: he locks her out of the house and fi les a lawsuit against her for abandonment of her children. Forced to take refuge in a women's shelter, Maryanne at last finds herself amongst friends: women who understand her sense of terror and impotence and who vow to help her fi ght back. But the law is on Daniel's side. It grants him full custody of the children and refuses to take Maryanne's evidence of spousal abuse into account.

But Daniel is not only a nightmare husband: he is an abusive father. Discovering that he is verbally and physically abusing Jason, Maryanne makes a fateful decision. In order to protect the children she loves, she takes the law into her own hands and goes underground, establishing a new, secret life with new identities for herself and her kids. Will Maryanne, Josie and Jason ever be able to live happy and normal lives? Only if the law sees the errors of its ways.
