Elle Bishop takes an early morning swim in the freshwater pond below the so-called ‘Paper Palace’, an old summer camp in the backwoods of Cape Cod. Glancing at the house as she passes by, Elle promptly dives beneath the surface and revives a the shocking memory of the sudden passionate encounter she had the previous evening, while her husband and mother chatted to guests indoors.

And so, a story unfolds over twenty-four hours and across fifty years revealing family legacies, love, lies, secrets, and a childhood incident that will lead Elle to contemplate a life-changing decision between the world she has made with her husband, Peter, and the life she had imagined with her childhood love.
