Sophie spends each night in darkness at the side of a stage, producing the alchemy of theatre. Her job is invisible to most people and so, it would seem, is her life. In an attempt to come out of the shadows, Sophie enters a body-building competition, sculpting her body into the best shape of her life. But such discipline is hard to maintain, and Sophie finds herself locked in a destructive cycle of bingeing and restricting.
When she hits rock bottom, she chooses to give up dieting forever. But the road to healing is not what she expects, and she is forced to confront issues in her marriage, her job, her friendships, and her identity as an independent woman.
On a hot New Years’ Eve overlooking Sydney Harbour, Sophie kisses someone who isn’t her husband and sets in motion a series of events that threaten to destroy her marriage, her job and her reputation.
Will Sophie survive the affair or will she damage herself and her husband forever?
