If you had the power to revise your past, what would you change?

Who would you be?

Trust fund darling Emma imagines what her life would have been like had she come from a less privileged background

Trouble is, she chronicles her alternate life in a new tell-all "memoir" that was sold for a hefty advance

When Emma is exposed, will her sister, Tess, stand by her?

Or will Emma's deceit destroy their already fractured relationship?

This dark comedy brings up questions of legacy, loyalty and what it means to belong
