Marlena and Evan got a second chance in life when they collided by chance seventeen years ago. As a crisis center manager, her personal history of emotional and traumatic experiences makes her resilient and grateful for her present life and family. Now, as she believes her own demons were dealt with long ago, or have at least been well-managed, she helps others face their own pain and struggles. Without warning, a figure from her past appears to enlist her help with an old murder investigation. It will take Marlena's deepest emotional and personal strengths to face this new chapter, which brings intense emotions and deeply buried memories to the surface. It will all come together, one way or the other, by the Ides of March.
