Meryl in Paul Morgan sta premožna in privlačna newyorška zakonca, ki živita v izobilju in kroničnem pomanjkanju medsebojne ljubezni. Njuno življenje se spremeni, ko sta priča mafijskemu umoru in pristaneta v programu za zaščito prič, v okviru katerega dobita novi imeni in novo življenje na ameriškem podeželju. Bo nov začetek v objemu narave pripomogel k razrešitvi njunih osebnih težav ali se bosta sredi divjine, daleč stran od velemestnih užitkov, Morganova dokončno razšla?
Meryl and Paul Morgan have separated since his infidelity. He's a Manhattan lawyer, seeking forgiveness. She's moved on, focusing on real estate sales. As he walks her to an appointment one evening, pleading his case, they witness a murder; the murderer sees them. The FBI wants them in witness protection until the killer is caught. He's already hunting them. The FBI sends them to Ray, Wyoming, a tiny ranch town, where they stay with the aging sheriff and his gun-toting wife (who's his deputy). Meryl and Paul must sort out their relationship while their New York ways bump up against those of the West. Meantime, Meryl knows two things that Paul doesn't.
