Lake Tahoe, California. A mother wakes early one morning to find the body of her closeted seventeen-year-old son's lover impaled on an anchor on the beach of their lake-front home. With her husband away and nowhere to turn, she makes a reckless decision to move the body and hide it in the lake, only to find herself and her family in even greater danger when the body is found, and impossibly, she is confronted by blackmailers. The Deep End, based loosely on Elizabeth Sanxay Holding's 1947 novel \"The Blank Wall\", is a story of a mother's relationship with her son as she struggles desperately to cope with a crisis that threatens to envelop her entire world.
