Having been introduced only days prior, the innocent, naive Crystal Vargas elopes with a charming Brit named Duncan Douglas, who seems to be all she’s ever wanted in a partner. Without knowing it, however, her desire to be loved plays into the motives of her new spouse, a manipulative sociopath in need of an American wife to help him keep up financial appearances.
When Crystal’s sister, Lyssa, notices strange changes in Crystal’s behavior and her request for her security clearance is not approved, Lyssa brings on a private investigator to delve into her suspicious brother-in-law. While the true story might prove Lyssa right, it may also come at the cost of Crystal’s life.
