Some years later, Carl returns with his charismatic new wife, Shannon – an architect. They are full of exciting plans to build a spa hotel on their family land. Carl wants not only to make the brothers rich but the rest of the village, too. What begins as a jubilant homecoming soon threatens to derail everything Roy holds dear, as long-buried family secrets begin to rise to the surface.
