When The May Mothers, a Brooklyn mother’s group that typically meets at a local park, decide one summer night to blow off steam and go out drinking, the unthinkable happens: One of the mother’s babies goes missing. The scandal rocks the community, most of all the mothers in the group, who begin pointing fingers—and drawing suspicion—as the story deepens and more questions arise about what actually happened to the baby and who is to blame.
