A top marine biologist and seal specialist, wishing for the kind of discovery that "changes everything," comes across a beautifully unsettling, naked woman on the rocky Maine coast one night, just after he has found an empty seal skin.  This event challenges everything he knows as a scientist.  It also threatens his tenuous marriage and raises--for him, his wife, the exotic newcomer, and us--questions about what happens when the ghosts of our past impel us to leave what we know and enter places we don't belong and can't survive.
