Owen Pick's life is falling apart. In his thirties, a virgin, and living in his aunt's spare bedroom, he has just been suspended from his job as a geography teacher after accusations of sexual misconduct, which he strongly denies. Across the street from Owen lives the Fours family, headed by Cate, a physiotherapist, and Roan, a child psychologist. But the Fours have a bad feeling about Owen, their teenaged daughter swears he followed her home from the train station one night. Meanwhile, young Saffyre Maddox a former patient of Roan Fours searches for other ways to maintain her connection with him. Then, on Valentine's night, Saffyre Maddox disappears--and the last person to see her alive is Owen Pick.
