Prompted by an almost fatal car accident, Sara and Roy, a married couple, decide to start a new life and move to the small town of Cold Spring. This incident also serves as a wakeup call for Roy who breaks off an affair he's been having with his sexy mistress, Diane. Just as they begin settling into their new life, Diane shows up in Cold Spring and declares that she cannot live without him and has just bought a house in Cold Spring to be near him. Roy visits Diane's house to break it off and is surprised to meet her son Jacob for the first time. Diane insists that they belong together and should be a family. Knowing how much Roy wants children that, thus far Sara has been unable or unwilling to provide, she tricks him into interacting with Jacob. Despite the temptation, Roy insists he will remain faithful to his wife and leaves Diane, and Jacob, this time for good. From that moment, any woman Roy comes in contact with starts turning up dead and Roy becomes the prime suspect in their murders.
