They were the picture of a perfect relationship for many years. From a chance encounter in the rain at college to their romantic engagement and the most beautiful wedding to follow that. But all relationships have their problems, and Melinda (Taraji P. Henson) and Robert (Lyriq Bent) were the epitome of that sentiment.
By the time 18 years had passed, things had grown stale. They were strangers living in the same house, affection and intimacy had become a thing of the blissful past. Melinda starts to suspect that Robert is cheating on her, and her suspicions are soon confirmed.
Their marriage over, Robert moves in with his new fiance; a beautiful woman named June (Jazmyn Simon) who has everything that Melinda feels she doesn’t have, such as youth and a luxurious lifestyle. It doesn’t take long for the betrayal and the jealousy to build up a dangerous whirlwind of rage within Melinda; a deadly force that’s set to explode come her ex’s fateful wedding day.
