Synopsis:

Judith comes home to find her husband of many years quite discombobulated. Dan has had an automobile accident from which he miraculously walked away without a scratch. He should have died, and now he is looking for a rational universe. While new friends are visiting, a strange woman shows up. She is Mary, the wife of the man in the other vehicle. It soon becomes clear that she and her husband are not as ordinary as they first seem, and the mystery that surrounds them includes a bag full of money and a secret code. Mary disappears after she is asked too many questions about her life, and then... the cops show up.
