Ellie Barrett and Joanna Fox are neighbors who used to be friends. Now they are neighbors who pretend to be friends. And that’s okay with Ellie. With three children, a sick mother and a difficult husband who admires the slim athletic Joanna a little too much, Ellie doesn’t have time for neurotic Joanna Fox. A wave and a nod across the cul-de-sac and the occasional car pool is enough for Ellie. She prefers to keep her distance.
Ellie’s and Joanna’s not-so-peaceful co-existence is threatened when a global pandemic and roiling social unrest trap the two families together. Will the two families rally to protect themselves from the violence that threatens their suburban oasis? Or will long-held secrets blow the two families — and their respective marriages — apart?
