It is New York, 1932. Sarah and John would never have met if it wasn’t for their mutual acquaintance Margaret Wilson, who was killed in a hit and run accident. Or was she? John’s relationship with women, up until he met Sarah, had been cold and artificial. He has never been in love before and finds himself out of his depth. Also, he is not able to explain his life choices to Sarah, as it could put them both in danger, especially as he is not sure he can trust her.
John’s life is all about power and control and Sarah’s is all about peace and the spirit world. Visually they are a perfect match, but in everything else they are worlds apart. For John, Sarah is the woman of his dreams. For Sarah, John is a cold-blooded mob leader. Or so she thinks. She can’t make her mind up, since he is always a kind and generous gentleman with her.
