Ben (Wes Brown) and Kara Turling (Austin High smith) are couple and have an adopted daughter-Riley (Lauren Gobuzzi). Ben Turling is trying to gain the trust of his wife back after cheating on her some time ago. A part of Kara is willing to trust Ben again while another part of her is reluctant to do so especially whenever he returns home late from work. One night, their daughter Riley gets kidnapped and in the process of trying to know who the perpetrator is, another hidden secret of Ben is revealed. Would this secret tear the couple who are trying to fix their marriage apart or will it make them stronger? Find out in the plot.

It is little Riley’s (Lauren Gobuzzi) birthday, the adopted daughter of Ben (Wes Brown) and Kara (Austin Highsmith) Turling and her parents as well as grandmother celebrate her day with her with a lot of cupcakes and a big cake. Riley gets a book as a gift from her grandmother. Riley is a little moody on her birthday but her dad- Ben Turling cheers her up. Meanwhile, Riley receives another gift- a doll with no name attached to it.

Ben and Kara Turling discuss Riley in the kitchen and about the letters coming in from her biological mother- Vanessa (Erin Cahill). Ben tells Kara to keep ignoring those letters.
Riley is outside with her grandma reading a book while Kara interviews tons of nannies, in order to pick a nanny that will take care of Riley when she and Ben are out of the house.

Ben returns from work late and Kara is unhappy about it. She thinks Ben is having an affair with someone else based on his past infidelity. Ben tries to make Kara see that he is a changed spouse, but he is unable to fully convince her. Ben asks Kara about the interview with the nannies and recommends one of the interviewees- Kelcie (Lorna Street Dopson) to start the job based on his acquaintance with Kelcie’s father but Kara is sceptical about it.

The new nanny- Kelcie resumes work as a nanny at the Turling’s residence. Meanwhile Kara visits one of the female agents (Ariane Perideaux) that facilitated Riley’s adoption and tells her about the letter Riley’s birth mother- Vanessa has been sending. She tells Kara not to worry that she and Ben already have the Legal custody over Riley. Kara asks her why Vanessa suddenly wants Riley when she has always been of danger to her. But the female agent tells Kara that Vanessa has been under counselling for a while; has changed her character and wants to have a place in the heart of Riley. She also tells Kara that Vanessa has stopped drinking and is now working full time.

Kelcie is nannying in a non-challant way at the Turling’s residence. While preparing Riley’s food, she is chatting as well on a phone with a friend which makes the food she is preparing for Riley to burn. Hungry Riley is unable to eat the food, so when they step out, Riley tells them to do the hide and sick game and Kelcie agrees to it. Riley stylishly enters the kitchen and tries to make food for herself. But little Riley apparently is not used to the gas as she turns the burner of the gas all the way up causing a minor accident. The fire extinguisher service come around and put off the fire. After the fire incident, the Turlings replace Kelcie. Kara apologizes to Ben for her ill reaction to his late coming the previous night and assures him that she trusts him.

Kara Turling picks another nanny- Alyssa (Valerie Azlynn) from the tons of nannies she had interviewed the other day. Alyssa and Riley get along after a while. Kara introduces Alyssa to Ben but he doesn’t remember the one-night affair with Alyssa a year ago. Ben is pleased that Alyssa is nice and their daughter- Riley also likes her as well.

A female neighbour tries explaining to Kara about an unfamiliar and nervous lady that lurks around their vicinity. But Kara in a bid to convince herself that it is not Vanessa tells Gena that the lady is probably one of those she has been interviewing for the role of a nanny. Kara immediately gets agitated over what Gena says when she enters the house. Kara calls the female agent in the adoption agency to confirm if Vanessa knows where they live, but she replies no. Meanwhile, Alyssa notices Kara’s worrisome mood and ask what the problem is, but Kara tells her to report any strange thing she notices.

Riley is already getting fond of Alyssa, so when her mum says she has to quickly go out and will join them in the family beach outing later, Riley pleads with her mother to allow Alyssa come with them. Kara not wanting to turn Riley’s wish down, Kara grants her request.

At the beach, Alyssa keeps staring at Ben. She tries her first seduction when she notices Ben massaging his back with ointment. She quickly approaches Ben and offers to help him without waiting for his reply. Ben being uncomfortable with what Alyssa is doing, politely walks away from her. Alyssa again comes around to where Ben and his daughter are and suggests that they go swimming, but Ben maintains that he wants to wait for his wife- Kara. Alyssa convinces Riley to go swimming, so Ben succumbs. Alyssa looks for Ben’s phone in his bag to take a picture of them in the pool, but when she notices Kara’s missed call, she instantly deletes it. After taking a picture of both Ben and Riley, she pleads with a female passer-by to take a picture of her with Ben and Riley, making it look like they are family. The female passer-by call them perfect couple but Ben immediately lets her know that it is not so.

Riley’s birthmother- Vanessa finally summons the courage to approach Kara outside their apartment after snooping around for a long time. Kara finds out that she has been the one calling their phone and hanging up at the same time. Vanessa pleads with Kara to allow her see her daughter assuring her that she is a different person now, but Kara tells her to leave their vicinity. Kara is unable to make it to the pool because of Vanessa’s sudden show up in their vicinity. Ben, Alyssa and Riley walk in and notice Kara’s sad mood. Kara tells Ben that Riley’s birth mother now knows where they live, that she had showed up at their door step. Meanwhile, Riley is unhappy that Kara didn’t show up at the family beach outing, Kara apologises to her and promises to make it up but that doesn’t convince Riley.

Ben tells Kara that he would call the adoption agency to know how Vanessa got to know their place since it is confidential. Ben shows Kara the Riley’s picture while swimming. Kara while scrolling to see more of their pictures, notices the picture of Ben, Alyssa an Riley in the water and that dampens her mood a little. Meanwhile, Alyssa and Riley are colouring in the room. Alyssa makes a drawing of the three of them excluding Kara from the picture.

On the dining table, Alyssa tries seducing Ben again. Ben being uncomfortable immediately leaves the dining table while Alyssa follows his moves but Kara is oblivious of her gaze. Alyssa’s seduction at the dining table ignites the sexual desire of Ben and he rushes to his wife to make love to her, but the fun is cut short when Riley screams and Kara goes to attend to her. She notices Alyssa in the room and then takes it up from her. Kara sings Riley a song till she falls asleep. Meanwhile, Alyssa seeing that Kara is with Riley goes to seduce Ben again. Ben tells her that he is a happily married man. Alyssa doesn’t believe him, so she jogs back his memory of their sexual escapade together at a bar about a year ago. Ben remembers and tells her that what they had in the bar was just one night and nothing more. Alyssa doesn’t seem to agree to that, she thinks there is more while ben thinks she is delusional.

Riley’s birth mother- Vanessa shows up at the playing ground where Riley and Kara are. Kara sights Vanessa and she shows her infuriation that Vanessa keeps following them everywhere. She tells Vanessa to leave or she would call the authorities. Vanessa tells Kara that she just wants to see her daughter that she is a changed person. Kara goes for Riley and they leave the playground leaving Vanessa behind.

Ben sick of Alyssa’s flirting acts sets some ground rules for her which is- no flirting, but Alyssa shuns his rules and keeps flirting with him, apparently, she thinks the one night sexual escapade with Ben a year ago means forever together. She again tries seducing Ben and this time, he fires her.

Ben replaces the gas and also buys Kara some flowers. Kara tells him that they should have some couple time together while Alyssa watches Riley. Ben tells Kara that Alyssa is no longer with them because she has some family emergency and wont be returning. Kara is not too happy about that, so she makes an attempt to call Alyssa but Ben tells her not to. Kara makes the food and then reads bed time stories for Riley. Riley asks after Alyssa and Kara lets her know that Alyssa wont be available for a while.

Kara and Riley go the beach and Kara shares some of her childhood days with her.
Ben returns from work and enters the shower. He notices some movements and thinks it’s his wife Kara. When Ben comes out of the shower, he is aghast that is wife is just returning home and wonders who else is in the house with them. Kara reads the bedtime story for Riley while Ben watches them. While Kara and Ben are in bed, Kara tells Ben of her plans to take time off from work in order to spend more time with riley to get her to fully convince her that she is in her home with her family and that no one will come and take her again. Meanwhile, Alyssa who has been hiding in Riley’s room realizes that the Turlings are asleep, sneaks out and takes Riley away without her parents’ consent.

The next morning, Ben discovers that Riley is not in her room. Both Ben and Kara search the whole house for her but did not see her. They involve the detectives.
Alyssa while driving Riley in her car tells the inquisitive Riley that they are going to the house where she had grown up. When they get to the house, Riley is reluctant to enter, she asks Alyssa about her parent’s whereabouts, but Alyssa tells her that they would play her favourite game- Hide and seek. Alyssa tells Riley that she is the one hiding while her parents will come and look for her.
Detective Malone (J.Teddy Garces) visits the Turlings and lets them know that Riley is not in Vanessa’s house but Kara doesn’t believe that because Vanessa has been stalking them lately. Detective Malone asks them if there is anyone else they suspect. At that moment, Ben remembers Alyssa. He calls Kara aside and tells her the hidden truth, Kara is mad at him for keeping such secret away from her. In their discussion, Ben sees Alyssa’s drawing on Riley’s wall and immediately has a picture of where Alyssa would be. Meanwhile, Riley is uncomfortable in Alyssa’s house; she tries to run out but Alyssa sights her and stops her. She afterwards takes Riley to her room and shows her all her dolls and introduces them one after the other. Alyssa tries to brain wash Riley by telling her that Kara has been lying to her.

Ben and Kara drive down to Alyssa’s house, leaving Riley’s birthmother-Vanessa to watch the house for any update on Riley. On getting to Alyssa’s house, Kara hides in the car while Ben alone enters Alyssa’s house. After so much consideration, Alyssa opens the door for Ben. Alyssa points a gun at Ben and asks if he truly wants to be with her forever and not Kara. Ben assures Alyssa that he is no longer with Kara. Ben tries to trick her to think that he is in love with her and not Kara.

Kara comes out of the car and goes in search of their daughter Riley. She passes through the back door and sights Riley tied to the bed. When Riley sights her, she calls her mum with joy. Alyssa hears this and shoots Ben. She immediately runs to the room to get Riley before Kara gets to her. She puts Riley in another room and lets her know that the doll gift is from her. She tells her to stay put else someone would get hurt, Riley shuns her and hides somewhere Alyssa is unable to find her.

Ben is hurt. Kara sees him and rushes to him. Writhing in pain, the Turlings plan against Alyssa. Alyssa and Kara embark in a fight and Kara knocks her down. They leave Alyssa’s house while the police take over.
Both Kara and Ben take Riley to the playing ground while Vanessa watches her daughter from afar.
