Mia and Ben, an Australian couple in their early 30s, have been together since high school. Their shared life had a promising start but stalled when they were unable to conceive - something they never anticipated. They have relinquished one dream and embraced another, selling their Sydney flat and purchasing an old yellow house in the picturesque village of Cordes-sur-Ciel in South-West France. They soon meet sophisticated neighbours Dominic and Susannah, a British couple in their 60s who welcome them warmly but whose own relationship is at crisis point. Mia and Ben are immediately star-struck and impressed by their lavish hospitality. When Mia's mother comes to stay, she soon realises that Dominic and Susannah are not what they seem. Relationships between all parties become strained. Trust is broken and the older couple play increasingly complex mind games. Gradually Dominic and Susannah's secrets begin to surface, revealing details of the scandal they left London to escape and the truth behind their self-imposed exile in France. Reeling from these revelations, Mia and Ben no longer trust their own instincts. The peaceful idyll of their French life has unravelled. Can Dominic and Susannah escape each other, and can Ben and Mia they find their way back to each other and the dream they shared?
