After 4 children find a dead body while running through a park, a small California college town discovers that things there aren't quite as tranquil as they seem and that some families, or most families, have secret problems that they do their best to keep secret. The teacher of the 4 children who found the body, came upon them soon after the discovery and finds herself involved with the investigation especially after a handsome FBI agent comes on the scene.
I thought at first that this was going to be an interesting story but it turned out to be much more obscene, disgusting, and depressing than I thought. It was very very obscene and violent. Even without those issues, I would have a hard time recommending it because it was extremely depressing with physical and emotional abuse of the children involved, and one case in particular being very disturbing.
