In this topical, tropical thriller we follow couples struggling with their marriages to a beautiful resort run by celebrity power couple and marriage counselors, Drs. Miles and Grace Markell. As the intensive therapy program begins, it becomes clear that Harmony is not all it seems—and neither are Miles and Grace. What are they hiding, and what price will these couples pay for finding out? We all have 13 secrets…5 will be buried…The rest will be revealed.
