    Alice Hale has become the new owner of a suburban house outside New York. She misses the city but is determined to build the kind of life her husband dreams of. She discovers an old cookbook filled with handwritten notes and becomes captivated with the previous owner, Nellie Murdoch, who was a 1950s housewife who left clues to her life in the book's pages and a set of letters to her mother that were never sent. Alice's friends and family grow worried when she begins dressing like a 1950s housewife, cooks elaborate old-fashioned dishes. When Alice discovers the secrets Nellie had been keeping her own grip on reality begins to loosen.
