The premise of the suspense-love-thriller has a novelist blinded in a car crash, played by Alec Baldwin, that killed his wife rediscovering his passion for both life and writing when he embarks on an affair with the neglected wife, played by Demi Moore, of an indicted businessman, played by Dylan McDermott who is faced with prison time and by association his wife is also indicted. Her sentence of community service has her reading to the blind.
