When fourth grader Lucien begins to display violent imagery in his crayon drawings, teacher Kate Byrne wonders how well he understands his mother's grisly work and why he's been exposed to it. His mother has just written a true crime novel of a brutal slaying. Her fixation with the crime-and Lucien's family-makes Kate become less aware of her own reputation in the present.
