In 2003, Zoe was a budding freelance journalist with a happy marriage. But her life is ruined when she is tricked by a young man she and her husband befriend, who begs her to come to Ecuador to help him. Acting strangely the entire trip, he later apologizes for his odd behavior and takes her shopping to make it up to her, buying her a suitcase for all her gifts. What she doesn't know is that the suitcase is full of cocaine.
