During the 1980s, Jack Kelly was a celebrity broadcaster and successful novelist. His life in the public eye allowed him a privileged position which few experienced, with access to select places and an army of adoring fans. Several decades later, Jack receives a phone call from his secretary. The urgency in her voice stops him in his tracks. A story about Jack has emerged on social media and gone viral. It details his relationship with a young woman, Marian Davies, thirty years previously. The last thing Jack needs is scandal, especially when he's about to embark on an important new career move. As he looks back over the decades since he last saw Marian, to a time before social media when he controlled the narrative, one question remains: why has Marian reappeared?
