Jo and Zack are both proud and a little concerned when their youngest daughter Taylor has two paintings chosen for a major fundraising auction. Taylor's birth mother was a brilliant but notorious artist and her talent has passed on to her daughter. They've seen one painting but Taylor has kept the other, a portrait of a young male model, in her studio. Their concern grows when it becomes publicly clear that the young man is the lover of the older socialite who organised the fundraiser. Soon an ugly web of deceit surrounds the family and Jo must fight to keep them safe.
