Alison is a most unusual suburban wife. Married to Donnie Hendrix, and (adoptive) mother of Oscar and Gemma, her yoga pant-wearing, craft-making, soccer-coaching exterior is a smooth front for who she really is: a pill-popping, gun-toting, alcohol-addicted murderer and adulterer. But after Donnie comes clean about his own clumsy murder, the two find a lost passion in their commiserating. Now sober and recommitted to "Team Hendrix," Alison intends to keep her eye on the prize: helping her sisters and keeping her family safe. But suburban life is never as quiet and simple as you might expect, and Alison will soon find her world filled with new pesky obstacles.
