It's the new normal at the Garber household in Connecticut: Glen, a contractor, has seen his business shaken by the houseing crisis, and now his wife, Sheila, is taking a business course at night to increase her chances of landing a good-paying job.

But she should have been home by now.

Waiting for Sheila's return with their eight-year-old daughter sleeping soundly, Glen sson finds his worst fears confirmed: Sheila and two others have been killed in a car accident. Adding to the tragedy, the police claim Sheila was responsible.
