"Evylyn, I’m going to give a present that’s as hard as you are and as beautiful and as empty and as easy to see through."
When New York housewife Evylyn Piper receives a cut-glass bowl from a former boyfriend as a wedding gift, it's like the bowl brings a curse along with it. As years go by, a downward spiral seems to engulf her family and all she has to blame is that cursed bowl.
