They called it a "walk away." The car abandoned miles from home on a stormy night. The note found at a nearby hotel. The shattered family that couldn't be put back together. It happens all the time, they said. Women disappear, desperate to leave their lives behind and start over.
But is that what really happened to Molly Clarke?
For Molly, the night she disappeared began with a storm, running out of gas, and a man with a truck who offers her a ride to town. The man is not alone - with him is a beautiful little girl who reminds her of the daughter she lost five years ago. It feels like a sign. It feels safe. And Molly is overcome with the desire to be home, back with her family - no matter how broken it has become. She accepts the ride.
But when the doors close, locking shut, Molly begins to suspect that she has made a terrible mistake.
