On the night of October 11, 1981, David Parker and his wife Marie were driving their car in a torrential downpour before what was supposed to be a romantic anniversary dinner. What lay ahead of them on the road was a fate that was far more twisted than the curvature of the asphalt.
Six years after that night, David awoke alone.
Across town, Catherine spends her nights dreaming of a better life. She is a young widow and her beauty is surpassed only by the sadness that overwhelms her. Love eludes her. Until she connects with a man whose voice fills her heart with its melancholy truths about life. David and Cat have yet to meet face to face. They fall in love over the airwaves, both having come in possession of a portable, two-way radio transceiver.
David's ex-wife lurks in the shadows after realizing she's in an abusive relationship with the man who saved her from the car accident six years prior, but Marie's veins are filled with venom.
Will David and Cat ever meet? Will Marie's vendetta force them apart? Or is it the rift in time that will cause David to question his sanity?
