Présentatrice de journal télévisé et épouse d'un magnat des médias, Maddy Hunter est un personnage public. C'est à ce titre qu'elle est choisie par la femme du président des États-Unis pour participer à un comité de réflexion sur la violence domestique. Un problème qui la touche particulièrement car, à dix-sept ans, mariée à un homme qui la battait, elle n'a échappé à une existence sordide que grâce à Jack Hunter, qui l'a aidée à divorcer et lui a offert un poste à la télévision, avant de l'épouser. Mais en réalité Jack est un homme dur, manipulateur, exigeant, parfois cruel à son égard. Détestant les enfants, il a insisté pour qu'elle se fasse stériliser. C'est en participant au comité que Maddy comprend que la violence peut prendre différentes formes et que celle que lui impose Jack n'est pas la moindre. Avec l'aide de Bill Alexander, un autre membre du comité, elle entame un long voyage vers la liberté, au terme duquel elle recevra le plus merveilleux des cadeaux...
