The entire movie is based in Philadelphia, where a restaurant and food critic named Leeza Mitchell and ad man named Trey Mitchell fall in love and have been married for 10 years. They even have a nine-year-old son named Dylan Mitchell. Apart from the common and regular work stresses and other career related differences, they have been a happily married couple for 10 years. However, things take drastic turn when Mitchell’s ex girlfriend Jeanette Halston reenters his life. She hires him to work for her ad film campaign for her famous fashion house. Leeza suspects the relationship between the two as an affair base on circumstantial evidence — like why he comes home late and why Jeanetet is the only client he talks to late at night.
Mitchell dodges all of Leeza’s questions, which increases her suspicion on their relationship. Taking advice from her best friend Sacha, Leeza hires a private investigator to learn about her husband’s whereabouts. He is the same PI hired named Ethan, by Sacha as well, which increases Leeza’s trust towards him.
Little did Leeza know about Ethan’s plan and his agenda to win her heart. This behavior towards her was a result of his situations from the past and his experiences. He also puts Leeza’s entire family in danger, and she is completely unaware of the situations taking turn under her nose.
