Eleanor Hurley is a woman leading a life of quiet desperation when a single moment of violence changes everything. Eleanor kills a homicidal man to save a group of children. With this lethal act she is released from her former existence, yet her freedom comes with a price: Eleanor’s not repulsed by her capacity for violence, but rather exhilarated by her unsuspected power to take a life.
