Joe-Wayne Watts is a young, exhausted, and stressed-out new father with an equally young and exhausted wife. He and Carrie have just brought home a precious new baby and been dealt two unexpected and devastating blows.
But life has a way of working out, and the Watts family moves on and copes with their lot in life. Joe-Wayne is a devoted husband and father, a pillar of the community, a friend to all. Carrie oversees a life as orderly and polished as her home is. Alyson is growing up contented, thriving, nurtured and cherished.
But all that is only possible because of the night Joe-Wayne said he was running to the store for a package of diapers. Where he went and what he returned with changed the course of everything, but no one except Joe-Wayne knows the course didn’t change on its own. If anyone knew it would shatter this perfect portrait, and not just for the Watts family. There are others whose lives would be destroyed if they knew what the result had been of Joe-Wayne’s late night errand.
