Miranda is a bright, attractive woman with an important government job, a nice home, and a prominent lawyer husband. Her fraternal twin sister, Jessica, is a sportswriter who has spent years sacrificing her social life and conventional career prospects to establish a magazine. Jessicas publication has finally caught on after receiving renown for an article she wrote about local baseball star Manny Chavez. She chronicled Mannys perilous journey back to his native Cuba to retrieve his son, who had been abducted by his unstable ex-wife Guadalupe.Jessica, now engaged to Manny, invites Miranda, her husband Tommy, and their parents to join her in a luxury suite to watch the hometown Washington Filibusters take on their archrivals, the Florida Keys, in a championship game. As they are wined and dined by the team owner, Miranda envies her sisters seemingly perfect life and faces the reality that her own is a facade. But when Manny disappears from the ballpark after the game, and is missing for several agonizing weeks, the "perfect" couple sees their world blow apart. Jessicas suspicions about the kidnapping are wide-ranging, and she is determined to investigate. Nobody seems above suspicion--not Mannys teammates, the team owners, or even Miranda and her husband.
