Moss and Avis, an attractive, middle-aged couple, wake up one morning in an isolated summer house high above a picturesque body of water

The weather’s fine; the view’s magnificent

There’s only one problem — neither of them can remember who they are

When a young woman named Wren arrives, information starts to flood in

But will it help?

Her explanations seem only to make Moss and Avis’ world—as well as ours—more terrifying

" ... the work of a mature master dramatist in complete control of his materials" ~ San Diego Union-Tribune
