Sheila Hood (Kathleen Munroe) is an ex-cop whose marriage is on the rocks. Rather than confronting her husband about an affair, she hides surveillance cameras in her home and watches his transgressions, becoming a voyeur of her own life.

 

Her husband, Tom Kale (David Alpay), is an ornithologist who begins an affair with an ex-girlfriend, Merle James (Melanie Scrofano). Ray Starling (Joris Jarsky), the charismatic owner of a boutique hotel, is Merle’s lover, and has dealings with her father, Mr James (Stephen McHattie), a powerful oil baron who operates in the shadows but whose influence touches the whole city. Merle’s younger sister, Hazel (Cara Gee), is also drawn to Tom, but trapped in Starling’s web of power.

 

Calvin (Benjamin Ayres) is a cop whose loyalty to his ex partner, Hood, is tested when mounting evidence from her own surveillance tapes connects her and Tom to Starling’s murder, and perhaps even Merle’s mysterious death.
