In Shaker Heights, a placid, progressive suburb of
Cleveland, everything is planned—from the layout of the
winding roads, to the colors of the houses, to the
successful lives its residents will go on to lead. And no one
embodies this spirit more than Elena Richardson, whose
guiding principle is playing by the rules.

Enter Mia Warren—an enigmatic artist and single mother
—who arrives in this idyllic bubble with her teen aged
daughter Pearl, and rents a house from the Richardsons.
Soon Mia and Pearl become more than tenants: all four
Richardson children are drawn to the mother-daughter
pair. But Mia carries with her a mysterious past and a
disregard for the status quo that threatens to upend this
carefully ordered community.

When old family friends of the Richardsons attempt to
adopt a Chinese-American baby, a custody battle erupts
that dramatically divides the town—and puts Mia and
Elena on opposing sides. Suspicious of Mia and her
motives, Elena is determined to uncover the secrets in
Mia’s past. But her obsession will come at unexpected and
devastating costs.
