Remedies : Baltimore doctor Simon Bear is obsessed with easing the suffering of his chronic pain patients. His wife, Emily, a public relations expert, puts the best spin on the missteps of her corporate clients. They have a thirteen-year-old daughter, who doesn't have much to say to them. And they had a son once, whom none of them talk about very often. Now Simon has stumbled upon an obscure drug that may revolutionize the treatment of pain. In his excitement, he barely notices that Emily is seeking relief elsewhere. And neither fully realizes how much danger their daughter is in. Soon, everything they have will be on the brink of collapse, and there will be no masking the symptoms or hiding the truth anymore . . .
