Here is the official synopsis of the novel The Deepest Secret – Carla Buckley:
“Eve Lattimore is barely keeping things together. Her husband works fifteen hundred miles away, leaving Eve to juggle singlehandedly the demands of their teenaged daughter and fragile son. Tyler was born with XP-the so-called vampire disease: even one moment of sun exposure can have fatal consequences. So Eve does what any mother might do: she turns their home into a fortress. Every day, she watches the sun rise and fall, and keeps a close eye on her child. Friendships fall away. Her marriage is on the rocks. Her daughter’s going through something but won’t talk about it. Still, Eve believes that it’s all a matter of time before a cure is found, and everything can resume its normal course. Until the night she makes a terrible decision, and it’s not only the sun she has to hide from.”
‘Reflective Lights’ will be directed by art photographer Gregory Crewdson, as he makes his directing debut, from a script he co-wrote with partner Juliane Hiam.
Scarlett Johansson can be seen next as Black Widow in 2018’s ‘Avengers: Infinity War’, and also heard in Wes Anderson’s animated movie ‘Isle of Dogs’.
