After 12-year-old Hannah struggles against the sexual advances of a neighbor and pushes him over a cliff to his death, she and her best friends, Liz and Jeanne, pledge never to reveal what happened. But the secret reverberates throughout each of their lives, causing seemingly unrelated difficulties in their relationships with loved ones. Hannah essentially abandons her own teenagers while volunteering with babies born to crack-addicted mothers. Jeanne subjugates herself to a philandering husband, and Liz persistently puts off commitment until, at 50 and on the verge of an abortion, she comes home to confront her friends and try to exorcise their painful memories.
