Here’s the official description: “Former model, Toni Carter (Erica Peeples), seems to have the perfect life with a beautiful home and a husband who’s making waves in the tech industry. On the outside everything looks great but in reality, she deals with a husband she loves who works too much, won’t give her the kids he promised, and can’t seem to keep his hands off other women all while depression and anxiety threaten to get the best of her. Determined to make it work, the two renew their commitment to each other. After hosting the ultimate 10-year anniversary party for his company, Marc, portrayed by Sean Patrick Thomas, comes up missing and is soon found murdered. With both Marc’s family and his business partner all clawing at Toni for his money, it’s anyone’s guess who truly killed him.”
