Film abordant le thème de la violence conjugale: "Depuis trois ans, Laura (Julia Roberts) et Martin (Patrick Bergin) semblent former le "couple parfait", dans leur luxueuse villa au bord de l'océan. Mais ce n'est qu'une apparence: en réalité, Martin se montre extrêmement maniaque, possessif et d'une jalousie maladive, sujet à des accès de violence envers Laura. Celle-ci, décidée à fuir, apprend d'abord à nager, à l'insu de son mari, puis profite d'une sortie nocturne en mer sur le voilier d'un ami, pour simuler une noyade. Elle est ainsi considérée morte. Elle s'échappe et entame ainsi une nouvelle vie, sous une nouvelle identité, Sarah Waters, et se rapproche également de sa mère, aveugle, et placée dans une maison de retraite. Mais rapidement, Martin découvre la supercherie, d'abord en recevant les condoléances de la directrice de l'association au sein de laquelle Laura avait pris des cours de natation, puis en trouvant l'alliance de Laura, qu'elle avait jetée dans les toilettes. Il entame des recherches, et apprend également que la mère de Laura est en fait toujours en vie, alors qu'elle lui avait annoncé sa mort. En la retrouvant, il arrive ainsi à découvrir où vit à présent Laura. Il la découvre souriante, amoureuse d'un nouvel homme, Ben, professeur de théâtre, qui l'aide à surmonter ses peurs et ses inhibitions."
