Young Aviva Grossman is a congressional intern who makes the mistake of having an affair with the married congressman she works for. The affair comes to light, she is slut-shamed, and sees no solution but to change her name, move to Maine, and raise her daughter quietly in a small town.

When she decides to run for local public office, Jane/Aviva learns that the past is never completely erased in the digital age. And she must reckon with her daughter who is now old enough to seek answers about her mother’s past and her father’s identity.
