Thriller, Canada/USA, 2006, 88 min.

Synopsis Deborah Matthews' divorce from her husband Jason Matthews has just been finalized. She filed for divorce because she believed he was cheating on her. Jason has since moved away to work on an often communication inaccessible research ship. That fact and the divorce itself does not sit well with their sixteen year old daughter, aspiring ballerina Erika Matthews, who blames her mother for her parent's martial problems due to her being a workaholic and for her not forgiving Jason for the indiscretion, which he vehemently denies. To make matters worse, Erika's long time ballet coach, Leonard Capas, has just quit before her important audition into the Ballet America summer program. Mr. Capas' resignation was solely by a cryptic letter with no in-person good-bye to staff or the students. Luckily, the ballet school is able to fill immediately Mr. Capas' job by a young man named Reed Halton, who believes he can help Erika prepare for her audition. Reed has been a widower now for eighteen months, his wife who was a former ballerina herself. Although apprehensive at first since he is Erika's teacher, Deborah, feeling like she should start dating again, begins a relationship with the handsome Mr. Halton, of which Erika is aware. Through this dating process, Deborah has Erika's well being and her audition as a priority. Deborah begins to see some behavior in Reed that somewhat troubles her. Deborah soon realizes that Reed has his own priorities and that almost everything that has happened to the Matthews family of late, including Mr. Capas' resignation and Jason's departure, was not by accident.
